Welcome to the Lore section!  Learn how to backpack, thru-hike, and more.  Below you can find backpacking articles in three sections: gear lists and reviewsthe fit hiker, and knowledge.  Can't find what you need?  Please reach out to us.  We would love to write an article just for you.

Learn How to Backpack

Benefit from all that we have gained during our adventures, including long-distance hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), extensive backpacking and day hiking in the many of our state and National Parks, epic road trips of the USA, hiking the John Muir Trail (JMT), thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail (AT), and preparing for our next thru-hikes of the Florida Trail and Pacific Crest Trail in 2019.

One thing that we have learned is that backpacking is a community that gives freely, and everyone I have met knows something I do not.  Please participate and engage us, as a result, the entire community benefits from your constructive comments.
