We specialize in modern backpacking gear and skills, long-distance thru-hiking, mountain high routes, and off-trail travel.
Learn to research conditions, select gear, plan meals, make maps, and more.
Thru-hikes and high routes, plus related guides, gear lists, and how-to information.
My writings on backpacking gear, supplies, and skills, and sometimes about running, hunting, and life events.
High route guides, a free food e-book, and signed copies of The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide.
