Go on, get out there!
I want you to enjoy your time outside as much as I do, so I have created a variety of resources that will help you get ready for your next hiking adventure. Check out my featured projects below, or head on over to the blog.
“I bought this book because my partner and I are planning a 3 to 4 week hike this summer and it’s been a great resource so far. If you’re in a similar situation as us, where you’re planning a long hike but only have experience with weekend trips, I whole-heartedly recommend it.”
In Backpacker’s Long Trails, Liz “Snorkel” Thomas, former women’s speed record holder for the AT and veteran of twenty long trails, gives you the tools to make this dream a reality. Included is trail-proven advice on selecting gear, stocking resupplies, and planning your budget and schedule, complete with gorgeous photographs of life on the trail. Along the way, enjoy sneak peeks into not only the Triple Crown trails, but also lesser-known long trails throughout North America.
