There is also a search function on many pages in the upper right area just under the menu bar.  This can aid immensely when searching for something specific.


The majority of the information found on our webpages is not specific to just a  single destination backpacking adventure.  The majority of this information can easily be applied to any trek you attempt to do.

Also remember the info on this site is an accumulation of backpackers input.

Anyone using or referring to any of this material accepts the fact they must determine on their own what is factual or not, what applies to local area laws, customs, restrictions, etc., or not.

This website,  admins, affiliates, contributing members, and etc., bear no responsibility for errors or omissions.

We created this website because we have made numerous trips to a variety of destinations, and under about any weather condition possible.

The same questions kept getting asked repeatedly.

Our original purpose started out simple enough.   For friends, family, and associated backpacking team members.

That morphed into trying to help answer questions of people that intend to visit an area for the first time, and are unable to find answers elsewhere.

We have had several very successful websites and Social Media groups since the early 2000’s as Facebook gained in popularity.

Now with social media we often see erroneous recommendations, or bad info from ‘visitors’ posts or replies.

Rather than us typing the same things over and over through other forms of social media, we can simply reference a link on our site.

We realize how those new to Backpacking, Yakpacking, or vehicle camping, have no clue about camping etiquette in general.  Or that rules/laws/customs may be different in different areas.

With our website, we simple try to provide more detail for those that have never visited an area.  Our Facebook social media is place for people to share their stories and photos.
