Anthony Jones is an avid adventurer and loves hiking and backpacking the back country trails and summits in and around the Southern California area. He puts together his podcasts in his spare time and shares them with folks that share his interest in the outdoors.
He’s hiked many high peaks in the Angeles, San Bernardino and Cleveland National Forests as well as explored the mud caves, wind caves, slot canyons and oasises of Anza Borrego State Park. He also makes trips up into the Eastern Sierra Mountains and has backpacked up through many high mountain passes and visited remote back country lakes.
Anthony likes to share his adventures and encourages everyone to get outdoors and like the Nike Ad says, “Just Do It”. He feels you don’t have to be a well conditioned triathelete or seasoned mountaineer to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the forest. Just take your time and enjoy the experience being out in nature.
Even though Anthony has hiked and backpacked many areas through the southland he is not an outdoor professional, just an average guy. Sure he’s made his back country mistakes over the years and in his podcasts he talks about his errors and tries to improve on his woodsmanship. You’ll learn from his mistakes and observations just by listening to his podcasts.
He’s also a gear nut and talks about his backpacking and hiking gear. He reviews his gear and talks about the benefits and shortfalls of his equipment as he hikes. I think you’ll get a good overall education about what does and doesn’t work along the trail and why.
