Thanks for visiting! I started this website to write about my backpacking and hiking trips. When I planned these trips I had trouble finding useful information online, and it definitely wasn’t all in one place. I am hoping to share with you all the information I’ve come across for each of these trips, including gear that’s worked well for me. Please browse around and comment or contact me with questions!
