A Bit About Me


I started hiking as a kid during my scouting days, and have hiked in several states, as well as in England, Germany, and France.

My best friend and I started achieving our goal of section hiking the Appalachian Trail a few years ago, planning a minimum of two hikes per year, always picking up where we left off on the previous trip.  To fill in the space between trips, we have also begun hiking in other states, constantly planning our next hikes.

My goal with this site is to provide you with links to products that I have personally used, and have reviewed on my YouTube channel.  I am focusing on cost-effective, quality gear, because you don't have to spend a fortune to get great gear.

Thanks for checking in, and Keep Hiking!



Florida Trail

Here is a brief video journal of my first section hike on the Florida Trail, in the Ocala National Forest.  Read the story on my blog!


Here is a brief video, with some highlights of my section on the Appalachian Trail, from Dick's Creek Gap, to Deep Gap, in North Carolina.  Enjoy, and Keep Hiking!


In this video, you get a glimpse into my process in creating recipes for my homemade hiking meals.  

This episode shows the first time that Ahab and I tried my Trail Tacos recipe, and you can see that we discuss if something needs to be added, taken away, etc.

I don't release a video for you to start playing with a recipe for your own homemade hiking meals, until I feel it's ready!  All of my homemade hiking meal recipe videos are available on this website, and on my YouTube Channel.
