We are officially “backpackers”

We finished our first trip, although 2 members of the pack were not able to make it we still had a blast!

It was challenging, rewarding, and exciting all wrapped into one. For now it somewhat hurts just to type so I will keep it short. Be on the look out for a full trip report, lots of pics, and when I get some time to edit we will have some HD GoPro footage as well!

Until then, here is an amazing shot from our camp as the sun sets on (what I am almost positive is) Black Mountain

  1. That is a beautiful shot of the mountain. Glad you guys had a safe hike. Can’t wait to hear how it all went.

  2. Congrats on your maiden adventure. I am also new to backpacking and am just gearing up. I haven’t done my first overnighter yet, so I am living vicariously through your experience. I am looking forward to hearing about it and seeing the pictures.

    • Welcome! It was truly amazing. We are working on all the pics and what not now and hope to have the full details posted by this weekend. We also have been gearing up like crazy so if you have any questions or what some pointers feel free to ask!

      • Thank you Slimms! I will….thankfully I have the great guys and gals at REI and Backpacker.com to help me so far.
