Dori started this site originally because she wants to prevent people from buying the wrong gear when they are just starting out.
Hiking gear can be super expensive and sometimes they just try to sell you something you don’t need. When you carry everything on your back, it will be heavy enough to carry all the necessary gear. Dori has experienced it herself, and that is why she wants to talk about what hiking gear you actually need and why…
Dori has been a long distance hiker for over 10 years and started off with an impulsive 7 day hike in the Scottish Highlands aka The West Highland Way. Now she has done multi-day hikes in several countries and goes out as much as she can. If you want to read more about how it all begin, please check out the blog section where she will write a few stories about her life and how she got to where she is now.
Dori’s aim is to create a one-stop-shop resource for all your (long distance) hiking questions about hiking trails, hiking gear and tips and tricks.
Any feedback and suggestions are always welcome. This site is built for you!
