A friend of mine who lives in Lancaster went on a backpacking trip with Bergthold a few years ago. He leads trips into the Sierra and shows you how to navigate off trail, and generally just how to have a real good time in the woods and the weeds. From what I remember of my friend's story, Bergthold is pretty militant about what and how much stuff you bring along, where the trip goes, etc... The article linked in another reply to this thread pretty much sums it up; it's from a publication called "Extreme Hiking".
Additional information: He teaches photography at Antelope Valley College in Lancaster. The link below is to the faculty page at AVC and lists an e-mail contact for him.
