I started camping and hiking and exploring at around 14 years old. I took a trip to Florida and then to Arizona. I spent an entire summer in a tent. I dug a hole for an out house. I dealt with rain collapsing tents in the middle of the night and scorching heat in the middle of the dessert. Canteens of water would quickly seem like they were filled with boiled water when left in the sun. But I also watched the sun set and rise from mesas, or prairies so vast I couldn’t imagine the end.
After that, as soon as I could, I started purchasing gear to really learn how to stay outside as long as possible. I wanted to explore.
