OUR STORY  

We are Jennifer and Tatem, a mother-daughter duo, who have been adventuring together nearly since Tatem's birth. We hiked or walked daily and her first overnight camping trip was at 6 months old. We did our first Appalachian Trail section together when she was 16 and our packs weighed almost 45 pounds each! We've come a long way since then!

Our goal for starting this little cottage business is to help people take the overwhelm out of the gear prep stage of backpacking. There is so much out there and hundreds of opinions on how it should be done. We have collected all the gear you need to just get started and that's what motivates us - making you less stressed and getting you on the trail for that first, life-changing overnight on the trail.
