I love camping, it’s one of my favorite things to do. Hiking and being in the outdoors goes right along side it. There’s something about enjoying your campsite after a long day of climbing mountains and being on the trail. A chill in the air as the sun sets, a fire to keep you warm. Gathering near a loved one, there is no better feeling.
Starting the hiking / camping lifestyle can be overwhelming. Most people don’t know where to start. Ok, do I need a backpack? What kind? There are thousands of types, and that goes for all the product categories.
Helping people with their adventure questions, helping people get started, giving people ideas, that’s where I come in.
Who am I? I’m Shannon.
In 2014, I hiked the Appalachian trail, which goes from Georgia to Maine, is 2,186 miles and took me over 6 months to complete. Whew, what an adventure that was.
I was also in the MN Army National Guard, which put me through a lot of training and also sent me to Iraq, in 2007.
Feel free to contact me for any question or reason you may have. I always love feedback and love to learn and share my passions with others! Thank you!
