    What was your prep for today?

    With a family in tow or left at home, I usually focus on a Get Home Bag (always in the truck and supplemented by my laptop/ EDC bag) or a Stay home bag (out of town but with the whole family.) But, I do leave my actual backpacking pack full of alot of the camping items I rely on. In a...

    2021-share your outings

    Wow- my first time seeing this one! Owen if you post on IG, YT or elsewhere, let us know. I know it’s work to post all this.... Cool stuff. My daughter will come with us occasionally so not ready for super long or treacherous hikes. But we’d love to in a few years when she can stay alone...
