Hi, I'm Emory


This is why...

I struggled for years with the desire to go backpacking, but I didn't know where to begin.  Summer after summer would leave me wishing I had done more in the mountains and come each fall I'd fail to push myself further into the backcountry while hunting.  Having grown tired of not living out my dreams, I decided to stop waisting time and just figure it out for myself.


A handful of years later, I've found myself enjoying backpacking far more than I ever thought possible.  I hiked over 2000 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2017, pursued elk in solitude miles from the nearest trail head, harvested my first deer while solo in knee deep snow, and finally found peace with being alone in the mountains.  


This website is dedicated to those of you who want to backpack better, push yourself further, and want to be real about the struggles involved.  

By Land,
