About Ben

1.  A person who is addicted to a particular substance.
2.  An enthusiastic devotee of a specified thing or activity. 

By profession I am a technology consultant.  However, those closest to me describe me as an outdoors addict.  My well being is dependent on regular exposure to outdoor adventure. 

I am an experienced backpacker with over 5000 miles logged over the last 15 years.  What feeds my addiction is the sense of accomplishment after a day on the trail.  I love guiding backpacking groups of all skill levels.

My other outdoor passions include snow skiing, scuba diving, biking, climbing and bouldering.
