MinimalTrek started as an idea to empower others to experience an active lifestyle outdoors.
However, that soon developed into: “how can I also promote these ideas in the most sustainable and environmentally-friendly way possible?”
It’s from this desire that I started this website.
The goal of MinimalTrek is in the name. Brainstorm and share the most sustainable, cost-effective, and efficient ways to experience the natural world responsibly.
I have loved spending time outdoors my entire life…
- I skipped my high school prom to go on a camping trip (I also was a loser and didn’t have a date).
- Growing up, my favorite trips were visits to the beach, hiking the mountains, or just camping at local parks.
- I’ve been lucky enough to travel all over the world; from mountaineering in Wyoming to climbing in the Austrian alps.
- When my wife and I travel to a new place (especially a city) I love to go on a very long run in the morning and explore the area when it’s quiet.
Bottom line, I’m very excited to start this website. Not only so I can share the tricks and ideas I’ve learned over the years, but to learn even more along the way.
