My family moved to Tucson in 1977. I was 11 years old. Our family would go hiking often, and my dad was Scoutmaster of our Boy Scout troop, so the outdoors has always been my primary interest. If I ever have a spare moment, or if someone asks what I want to do next weekend, the answer is always hiking or camping. I never get tired of it, and I hope to keep doing it until I'm too feeble to do so.

Back in the early 1990s when I was in graduate school at the UofA, I struck on the idea of climbing all of the mountain ranges in Arizona. This was pre-internet, and information was hard to come by. Then I came across "Adventuring in Arizona" by John Annerino (Sierra Club Books, 1991), where he told the tale of Doug Kasian, the first (as far as is known) to identify and climb all of the Arizona ranges. Annerino's book provided a list of the range highpoints. Oh, well, someone beat me to it. No problem, it was still an admirable goal, and would offer the opportunity to see parts of the state that I would probably never see otherwise, so I started ticking off peaks, particularly around Tucson and in southern Arizona. I didn't get too far, because I got married and moved to Washington, DC in 1999. I was away from Tucson for 20 years, though I often visited my parents and friends here. We returned to live in 2019. Beginning in early 2022, I decided it was time to reinitiate the quest, and I expect that it will be my focus for the foreseeable future. I have a family and a demanding job, so it will be a slow process. I might not make it to all of them, but one peak at a time will still provide for many weekends of fun.
