I am an avid backpacker and distance hiker. I grew up and currently reside on the coast of Maine. I have logged over 5300 straight miles to date on the trail, not including day hikes and weekend outings, with many more to come. Major trails I have spent time on include The Appalachian Trail, John Muir, Continental Divide and Long Trail. I spend an abundance of time exploring Maine's National parks and on The Appalachian Trail mostly. I am a single father with my hand in sales and marketing, roofing and our cities Recreation Commission all while helping at a local art and furniture gallery. I started with all the wrong gear, and now I have found a love for detailing my journey towards the right gear. Several hiking set-ups later, all of my gear reviews are based on first hand use, trial and error.
