30-Minute Thru Hiking Consult


25 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Dec 18, 2017

I will help you plan for a long distance hiking trip, by answering questions and providing insight from my experience.

This 30 minute session can include conversations about meal planning, gear selection, mail drops, trail towns, physical training, outdoor ethics, water caching, or any other questions you have about long distance hiking.

I truly enjoy talking on this subject and helping people get started on new adventures. I also recognize that every person is unique and that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to thru hiking. I will listen to your questions and concerns and do my best to prepare you for an enjoyable hiking experience.

I have personally hiked the PCT and AZT and I have also worked extensively on the Continental Divide Trail. I feel confident that I can offer valuable advice on other long distance treks as well.
