Meet the Editors

Katie and Mark have been wandering the woods together since college. Their love of the outdoors is matched only by their love for their dog, Nali. And they like each other a bit too.


Katie and Mark are Hoosiers (people from Indiana).


Katie realized her love for the outdoors as a child during camping trips with her family. Mark has been an outdoorsman for most of his life. Whether it is hunting, fishing, camping, off-roading, photography, or hiking, he never seems to be too far from the woods.


To both of us, backpacking is an incredibly healthy and rewarding hobby. It's a lot of work, but the places it can take you are worth the effort. We know that getting started can be difficult, especially if you don’t know where to go for information. That’s why we’ve put this site together for you. By compiling some of the best resources, as well as our own knowledge and experience, we hope this will be a useful tool towards creating a lifetime of adventure and travel off the beaten path!


We both love sharing knowledge, and we intend to keep the information on this site free of charge. We do our best to ensure all information is accurate and up-to-date.


If you notice any errors or have a suggestion please don't hesitate to Contact Us!


See you out there,

Katie & Mark
