The big CH launch went off without a hitch yesterday and our customers have been saying wonderful things about our series! It feels incredible to be part of a project that I believe in so much and that has been receiving such positive feedback from the community that I love. 

A huge thank you to everyone who made this launch happen. Thank you to all of our Indiegogo supporters for believing in our mission and giving our idea wings. Thank you to Director of Photography Matt Mastrantuono for making the most beautiful backpacking videos on the web. Thank you to our actors, editors, and design consultants Annie Hopfensperger, Marshall Walker Lee, and Lindsay Stern for looking so good and keeping it so real. Thank you to Luke Johnson for the beautiful graphics, Doug Galante for the epic logos, and Emancipator for the incredible tunes. Thank you to Travis Meyer for building a stunning website with incredible functionality. I couldn’t have surrounded myself with a better team. Thank you so much! 

It feels wonderful to finally launch our first series and start a journey that I hope to continue for many years to come. Our goal at will always be to help make backpacking more accessible and more enjoyable for anyone who wants to learn. Thank you everyone for being a part of this moment!
