I appreciate nature and the outdoors, being away from the hustle & bustle of the daily routine. I am passionate about backpacking/hiking, camping, a little hunting, some bird watching, fishing, sailing, and scuba diving.   I’m a gear junkie and I’ll spend countless time experimenting and trying out new gear so that I can form a truly honest opinion about it and provide that information to you, here.

All of my articles and reviews are based on my personal experiences and opinions.  You won’t find paid or “coerced” reviews and opinions in these pages.  I take safety and quality very seriously and I hope that you do too.
