Do not be caught out this winter, take these 3 little steps and be more prepared to enjoy the outdoors in any condition.

Being prepared for you and your family is very important and sometimes can be really stressful.

So why am I talking about solo hiking? Well look, a friend asked me recently ‘what was up’ with all of my solo expeditions through the wilderness (let’s just say this stemmed from a snapchat I sent of me laughing manically while I ran across a very rocky mountain ridge) and why I would put myself in such danger of doing so alone. There are a lot of articles out there (I won’t name names, but some are good, some are bad) that touch on both the physical and psychological gains of being a solo hiker. If you enjoy a good solo hike like me, you will probably resonate with the reasons as to why I love solo hiking below.

I want to talk about hiking safety and the decisions you need to make before embarking on a multi-day hike.

I identify myself as a son, brother, uncle, outdoorsmen and a sustainability warrior.
