This blog is about everything outdoorsy that interests me. Trip reports, resources, gear reviews, disaster preparedness, trip planning, random thoughts, survival (there’s always an element of survival in any wildnerness adventure, be it camping, backpacking, snowshoeing, etc.), and whatever else strikes me.
As far as the name… I think it best describes me. I absolutely love hitting the trail and spending time in the woods. Nothing like a good outdoor experience to clear your mind and keep you sharp in life. I am a thirty-something guy with a wife, 2 kids, far too many pets, a job that I work hard at (and works me hard at times), a house in the suburbs (white picket fence included). Not in the best of shape, but my legs never fail me, even after never training.
I am a bit of a gear-head. I love getting new things, giving them a good run, through. I love scouring through my equipment, and always making sure my “kit” is good. Adding here, removing there… since I ahve a demanding job and a family, I do not get out multiple times a week, or even multiple times a month. I get out when I can.
