I mostly focus on the Southern Appalachian region where I live, although I occasionally venture westward or northward. While I don't mind camping, I prefer to reach remote summits via marathon-esque dayhikes.

I have written Wikipedia articles for numerous mountains in Southern Appalachia, all of which are listed on my Wikipedia userpage: All of my articles contain source material and photographs.

Feel free to e-mail me ( about anything regarding mountain hiking and peakbagging in Southern Appalachia, especially the Great Smoky Mountains.
