This past weekend, my girlfriend Annie and I headed out for our first short backpacking trip of the season. I've been spending a lot of time in front of the computer preparing for the CleverHiker launch, so it felt incredible to take a short break from the screen and get out into nature. Every time I set foot on the trail I am reminded of why I love backpacking and why I want to dedicate myself to this project. Initial feedback about our video series and ebook has been incredibly positive and I hope to build off of that momentum. No matter what lies ahead for CleverHiker, it feels fantastic to be working on a project that I am proud of and working to support a community that I love.Read More
