About Me

Somewhere, B.C.

Growing up primarily in the Kootenays it was easy to take nature for granted. Mountain peaks, wild rivers, and silent forests were the playgrounds we spent our time on.

Moving to Vancouver made me realize how much my sanity and mental health depends on being able to disconnect and “lose” myself in the outdoors. And, while group hiking has its benefits and moments, the peace and comfort I’ve discovered in my own company has allowed me to explore the back-country solo, unhindered by other’s schedules and limitations.

My evolution from day hiking to backpacking to ultralight back-country backpacking has left me dreaming of thru-hiking, eyeing the grand prize of one day becoming a Triple Crowner. A journey becoming more a question of when rather than if, potentially next year on the PCT, fingers crossed.

The idea behind this blog is to document my journey and share the lessons I’m learning about gear, trail food, and about myself for anyone who wishes to read it.
