About Us

'We' are Josiah, Lexi, Todd, Dana, and Alan. Veterans of the outdoor life and all it has to offer. 

Josiah McCloud

Josiah is a long-time outdoorsman/adventure seeker, whenever he's not doing his day job as a structural engineer.

He loves to hike, ski, backpack, white water paddle board, rock climb, and anything that he can enjoy in the sunshine, be that in his home state of Colorado, or where ever the wanderlust takes him.

Find out all about his quest to find his inner mojo as he travels round the US in his RV, dispensing essential tips, advice, and extreme jealousy-inducing pictures as he does so.

You can see those pictures on Instagram, or view his videos of the trip on YouTube.

Lexi Brocoum

Lexi is a hiker, backpacker, and outdoor enthusiast born and raised in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. During the long northeast winters, she has a passion for skiing, snowshoeing, and ice climbing before cuddling up around the fireplace with her rescue pup Lucy.

Both Lexi and Lucy love to hit the trails whenever they can to explore all that the northeast has to offer.

When she's not in the mountains, Lexi enjoys board games, volunteering for international medical mission trips, and blogging on her website Hiking Up with the Pup.

Lexi is embarking on a road trip living in her converted Honda C-RV seeking out the most relaxing campsites, panoramic views, and refreshing lakes from her home in the Whites to the Rocky Mountains of the west.

Todd Perry

When you grow up almost within sight of the famous Bridal Veil Falls in Colorado, one thing's for sure: you'll be addicted to mountains and trails before you're out of diapers.

Todd kept feeding his outdoor habit after relocating to the UK, where he worked in corporate development into his thirties. He gained a love for the slightly damper, but no less beautiful British countryside whie he was at it.

Now back Stateside with his wife and two kids, he's doing his best to ensure they see as many mountain streams as livestreams. He's just about getting the hang of this Facebook thing now.

Dana Miller

Dana has been hiking, camping, and spending most of her time outdoors since she was a toddler. Raised in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley, she spent her days exploring in the mountains and her summers travelling to Montana’s national parks. As an adult, she lives in Portland, Oregon and spends as much time as possible outside enjoying all the Pacific Northwest has to offer. She’s particularly fond of trail running around Timothy Lake, then jumping in for a refreshing swim.

Dana is one of our review writers and has been writing professionally for over a decade. By day, she works as a content marketing specialist for an international tech company. She also owns and operates her own creative freelance service where she specializes in copywriting and web design.

Alan Jakeman

Alan is our resident expert on all things wild camping. He loves nothing better than to get out of the house with just his ex-Army sleeping gear and a stove, and head off to the remotest spot he can find near his home on the south coast of the UK.

When he's feeling adventurous and it's a bit warmer, he'll jump on his bike and head to Europe. The only thing better than a French pastry first thing in the morning after a night under a tree, is an omeletta you've made yourself!

You can follow his outdoor culinary experiments on his YouTube channel, or find him on Facebook.
