This is the personal blog of Matthew Brewer.

I realized a while back that I was telling people the same things over and over again. Stories about hikes, and things I'd learned about how to backpack in particular. The goal of this blog is largely to inspire people to get out there and just do it! The idea that life is a series of small adventures, that experimentation in life can be very full-filling and surprising and that there is just so much out there to explore!

I am very passionate about backpacking and the wilderness, and over time this grew into a blog primarily about various outdoor pursuits, but you'll notice other things sneaking in here and there.

I keep a separate blog, Computers Are Hard, for more technical computer topics, as those felt a bit out of place on this blog..
