Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

Cleaning out my old unwanted backpacking gear.

This weekend is the long distance backpacking weekend in Big Bear called Aldhawest. I’m bringing some old gear to the event for the swap meet. Parting with backpacking gear I used when I began backpacking (age 53!) was made easier by Melissa and Stacy taking home some of the gear for themselves.

It was probably 100 degrees in the garage while we were sorting/cleaning out the gear but the heat didn’t deter us from having a fun time as evidenced by the following photos.

Stacy wanted a beginning photo showing just how much gear I have (in these two closets).

Stacy trying out one of the two of the thermarest seats she bought. Great legs.

Can you believe Stacy didn’t want me to post this photo because she thought her legs looked too big? I convinced her that she has a disease of perception.

Stacy modeling an old poncho I never used that she had to have.

Melissa packing back up the Room at the Top tent she is borrowing for her weekend camping trip.

Stacy is an ever-willing model and great sport as she tests out the z-rest.
