I was that kid that always stayed out til after dark – never came home on time – and was often found miles from the house. I always wanted to see what was over the next hill or around the next curve. I never walked the same way twice if possible, so it was natural for backpacking and hiking to become a part of my life.
I’m older now, and the wander lust has subsided a little, but I still live vicariously through the journals and experiences of other hikers and wanderers, following the ramblings and explorations of other adventurers. I still purchase gear and try it out. I plow through hundreds of journals to find those that bring me back to what I love.
In my tiny corner of the internet I’ve gathered together what I find interesting, a few of my own experiences, and a conglomeration of tidbits and stories that might be helpful or interesting to others.
