This is perfect for you if:
You are new to backpacking and are not sure where to even begin.
You are terrified of going on your first solo hiking trip.
You feel like you aren’t fit enough, fast enough, or knowledgeable enough to have a safe and successful hike.
You are confused about gear – do you have everything you need? How do you get everything you need? Do you have way too much?
You have some day hikes under your belt and you’re ready to be a badass backpacker. But you need a little help physically, mentally and/or financially preparing for your first long distance hike.
Each week I will share a new lesson via email about a different backpacking skill or risk management topic.
You will also have lifetime access to my membership area full of resources, gear checklists, and how-to skills videos, including any updates that are added over time.
