Thanks for checking out my Patreon page. In 2014 I took a year off from my stressful job as a Police Officer to Cycle from Alaska to the Mexico border. During that time I decided I wanted to continue with this lifestyle but I didn't know how. While hiking in the Grand Canyon I met an older guy who hiked the Pacific Crest Trail and Appalachian Trail. He inspired me to lighten my gear and hike the Pacific Crest Trail. The rest is now a well documented journey as I've not only hiked the Pacific Crest Trail but also the Continental Divide Trail and Appalachian trail. In between hiking I cycled from Alaska to Ecuador. I love adventure travel.

I'm excited you found my Patreon page and happy that you might be interested in joining my community of outdoor loving adventurous hikers and bicycle tourers. As a patron you will get access to some content that I will only post on this site. And you'll have direct contact with me to discuss all things hiking and bicycle touring.

In the future I plan to hike and document some of the most amazing hiking trails in the world and take on some incredible bicycle touring and bikepacking routes. Join me.

Oh and don't worry, if you choose not to become a patron that is ok. All my blog posts and YouTube videos will still be available free of charge. Thanks for stopping by my Patreon page.

Goals
11 of 50 patrons
For the past 5 years I've hiked and cycled some of the most amazing places on the planet, including hiking the Triple Crown which includes the Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail and Appalachian Trail.

My goal is to hike the best hiking trails in the world and cycle through amazing countries. Along the way I produce high quality blog posts and videos that are informative, entertaining and high quality.

I have self funded these productions in the past but now I'm asking for your help. Become a patron and assist with the costs of production, help upgrade my camera equipment and website and put food in my mouth.
