I’ve hiked consistently for years: once every month in 2019, twice a month in 2020, and every Saturday since January 2021. Through it all, I’ve learned everything about every possibility on every mountain trail.
I have gone on to mentor hundreds of hikers at Outdoorer to find their peace, healing, and freedom in the great outdoors—as I did years back. Now I am on a mission to get thousands more people to do the same by sharing invaluable hiking tips and life-saving advice.
Hiking is not a reserve for the fittest, the strongest, or younger ones. Done right, hiking is the one sport that people of all ages can resonate with to bring out better versions of themselves.
