Welcoming the New Year and Looking to the Future

With the new year upon us it is time to kick things into high gear for Philmont. Training will commence in full force and gear testing will be done and buying the last items of gear. I am going to be posting about my gear and my training hikes and outings. Do not worry my friends I am still going to be hiking the Appalachian trail and this training and gear testing is what I would consider to be trail runs before the big show.  So keep on the look out for some great gear reviews and insights into what is in my backpack for both Philmont and The Appalachian Trail.

Happy New year and Happy Trails.

While he currently spends his time hiking in the backcountry of southern Arizona, he grew up in Missouri, where he was naturally inclined to spend as much time as he could outdoors. Adam’s passion for the outdoors grew as he climbed the ranks of the Cub Scouts and the Boy Scouts, eventually attaining the rank of Eagle Scout.
