Thanks so much for being here!  My name is Andrew Sporrer, but my friends call me Ace, and I’ve been a little wilderness monster since I was a kid.

This is a space for me to share my experiences and insights in hopes of cultivating a greater sense of community among those who love the outdoors and the equipment that allows us to stay out longer and in worse conditions.

Currently, I’m a full time freelance writer and content creator living in Seattle. I’m always up for a hiking, chatting about gear, and helping newcomers get acclimated with backpacking and camping. Drop me a line! Let me know if you have questions or want a topic covered.  I’d be glad to hear from you.
