Hi! Thanks for visiting our page! We're Stretch and RamboJuice, hikertrash bloggers, photographers, vanlifers, and all-around dirtbags.
A few years ago, we took a giant leap away from our conventional lifestyle to backpack in the United States. After spending 5 months on the Pacific Crest Trail, we started our blog Hikerlore to share stories and provide useful information to backpackers, hikers, and outdoor travelers. Recently, we bought an old service van and converted it into a sweet travel van.
We plan to road trip and hike as much as we possibly can. During that time, we'll write articles about our experiences and share photographs. Some of our posts will be narrative in nature, others will review backpacking gear and offer advice to hikers.
