Hi my name is Jeremy. Ever since I was a little kid I have always loved the outdoors. As a kid I did a little bit of everything. I remember going camping with my family and riding bicycles, hiking, and swimming in the lake or river. I am now 23 years old. I live in East Tennessee and I have to say it is great to live so close to the Great Smoky Mountains so that I can fulfill all of my adventures.

Here recently I have been seriously considering attempting to hike the Appalachian trail as a thru hiker. I have done some backpacking but it has been several years since due to work and other things in my life. (I also love tennis.) Now I am getting back into hiking and backpacking and have put together this site to help anyone else who is new to hiking, backpacking, or just plain camping. My goal is to give you only the best information I can find.

Follow me as I go on this journey to learn all I can about camping and hiking.
