What we’re about

Welcome, everyone!

As the pandemic lifts, we will be posting events, trips, and workshops here so that we can rekindle and connect over our love for humans and nature!

Meanwhile, it's May, 2022! Up your backpacking game for the summer season!! We just opened application for our "Backpacking 2.0" courses. Check it out and apply here:

We are a non-profit backpacking academy that teaches minimalist backpacking to folks from all walks of life and host programs to heal our healthcare workers and support wilderness conservation and education.

Smarter and easier way to travel in the backcountry
Carry less, experience more
Bond with great people at their best
Cultivate your best self

Fulfillment, not profit.
To help humans reconnect with themselves, one another, and nature.
To direct attention and resources toward wilderness conservation and education.
To inspire us to apply a minimalist mindset to our lives so to create abundance for all.

For whom?
Beginner day-hikers to seasoned wilderness experts (jaded ones welcome!)
Our students range from 20-somethings to 60-somethings
