Project Description

Safe money, time and energy by learning the essentials and all you need to know, to go on a self supported long distance hike or ultra-trail run from someone who did it before, instead of browsing online forums for months!
On my trips I have seen a lot of people suffering from too heavy backpacks and poor physical condition and the lack of preperation. Injury and not the outcome they had hoped for, are often the consequences. A lightweight pack and a handful of useful skills will add that bit of simplicity that makes the difference in your outdoor experience.
