Hiking for the Soul 

Stories about hiking, life, love and adventure.

Welcome to our site. We are so glad you stopped by.

 

We are not professional hikers, and this is not a traditional hiker blog. We love the outdoors and go as often as we can because we know from experience that hiking is good for the soul.

We want to hear from you too. Whether you are a hiker or whether you just know what it is to wander in the Wilderness. Please check out our submission guidelines if you have something that you want to share that might inspire others....We want to hear from YOU.

MARMOT TUNGSTEN UL 3P TENT

3 LBS 12.5 OZ MIN TRAIL WEIGHT

41.3 SQ FT 46" PEAK 2 DOORS

Perfect tent for a claustrophobic chick & her dude & dog. Until we found this tent, we were in a tiny little thing that we called "The Burrito" that weighed just as much or maybe a little more. But I couldn't sleep in it without panic attacks which led to throwing myself from the tent at night, every hour or so. Kind of annoying to all.

 

When we found this amazing tent, I felt as if we had moved from a studio apartment to a mansion. It is now discontinued, but someway, somehow when I went to replace our poor, used & abused tent, after months of looking and prayers on my part, REI came through & we were able to get the same one again. (I should have bought two because it is no longer available, once again.)
