I’m a Certified Professional Coach who fell in love with backpacking after walking over 1,300 miles of the Appalachian Trail and now help others experience the wonder of living and traveling in the great outdoors.
I genuinely believe the more savvy hikers there are out on the trails, the safer and better off we’ll all be.
The the ins and outs of pooping and having your period while hiking or backpacking – without causing a biohazard for other hikers.
“I’m wanting to start hiking soon, but I’m scared to go alone, any advice?”
“I’m trying to pump myself up for my first solo backpacking trip. However, I’m worried. Everyone I’ve told says it’s a bad idea, bad people will hurt me, it’s dangerous, I could fall off a cliff, etc.”
“I’ve been doing day hikes for a while now but have never been camping. My husband doesn’t really want me to because he’s scared something will happen to me but I really feel like I have to go!”
The Ultimate Hiking Safety Course is where you’ll learn to minimize risks on the trail and what to do if something does go wrong in the wilderness.
