So I started this site to help inspire people to go out and look for adventures close to where they live. Normally when we think of adventures it is extreme – a rim to rim to rim hike at the Grand Canyon – cliff jumping in Hawaii – island hopping in the Philippines – These are sweet and awesome but you can’t do that everyday.
The trips posted here are mainly the things I do around the Twin Cities (Minneapolis, St. Paul in Minnesota, USA) for weekday, weekend, or the longer camping trip.
Attached is my first unwieldy pack when I went on a trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. It’s a wilderness preserve in northern Minnesota that stretches up to the border and connects with Quetico Provincial Park in Canada and continues on from there. Pretty amazing, because of how continuous and large the wild area is. We did a short 4 day trip (thurs-sunday).
Anyway, I’d like to improve on this pack because it was kinda heavy and mad unwieldy. I’ll post my budget friendly, high performing equipment upgrades as I get them.
I’ll also post a trip report of this camping trip and other trips that we have done (biking, camping, hiking, or whatever).
These are trips you can do yourself if you live in the Twin Cities area, or can inspire you to search for similar adventures wherever you live.
