**As of October 26, 2014, I am no longer accepting any items for review.**
This is my personal blog, very similar to a personal journal, which I choose to share with others. However, due to this very reason, I do not accept “guest posts” on my blog. Nothing against anyone, but this is my story…
REVIEWING GEAR FOR YOUR COMPANY
As noted above I AM NOT ACCEPTING ANY SORT OF GEAR FOR ANY PURPOSE. As well, I am not in the position to help promote content, such as for Kickstarter, or any other sort. Nothing against you or your gear, I just don’t have the time.
A little about me, my perspective, and the content of my blog:
I mainly hike in the Southeast US, but have been lucky enough to spend a brief amount of time (7 days) hiking in the PNW as well. I prefer to venture out on hikes lasting 3 – 5 days long, rather than single day hikes, but, I will take what I can get. My preferred backpacking styles are that of “UltraLight” to “Lightweight” backpacking, however, come summer time, I will also log a couple “Super UltraLight” weight backpacking trips as well. (So, keep in mind that my perspective is presented from a “UL” stance.)
Please keep in mind, I am not a professional hiker, backpacker, or writer; my blog & YouTube channel is a hobby, as opposed to a full-time job (although, at times, I do dedicate full-time hours to the site). I operate this blog on my free time and the content within this blog is drawn from the times I am able to get out and hike and/or use the gear. The gear reviews that I have writen are based on my own opinions, which were formed from my personal experience with the gear, and how the items worked for me; both on their own, and along with the rest of my kit (as a “system”).
Simply put, each piece of gear will either work for me, or it won’t. In any review I have posted, I have stated one or the other, regardless if the reviewed gear was provided to me free of charge, or was an item that I dropped my own, hard-earned money on. However, I will be sure to include the reasons why it did or didn’t work for me since I realize that sometimes certain items may not meet my own needs, but may meet the next person’s needs just right. So, if an item shines I will declare it, if it fails, I will state that too…
Getting the word out…
There are a number of people who subscribe and follow my blog, as well as my YouTube channel. All of my entries are shared via my blogs FaceBook Page, Twitter, Google+, and of course on my YouTube channel if there is a video (and to some degree, even a few other media networking methods). Also, my blog is listed on numerous other blogs/sites on the web, so my articles are easily spread around.
If you are interested in me “reviewing” your gear:
As stated above, I am not longer accepting, or reviewing, ANY gear.
Thanks for your time!
