Hi! My name is Rod Clemen (trailname Boss) and I’ve been bitten by the hiking bug.
In April 2018 I embarked on my biggest adventure to hike the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). An absolutely amazing adventure that I spent all my waking moments of 2017 preparing for.
The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is a long distance hike that runs from the border of Mexico up through California, Oregon, Washington to the border of Canada – about 2653 miles.
Since I came back home I have realised that hiking is something I really, REALLY love (I already knew that I liked hiking after going on a few trips in UK and Ireland). I guess living the good life for 5 months in the wilderness has taught me that I will not be content with a 9-5 job. Even though I have an amazing job and colleagues, I still long for the the simple pleasures of just hiking and seeing how beautiful nature is.
For now though, I have to endure as it is expensive to travel, so I have to save up money for my next adventures. But hopefully some day I win the lottery (not likely as I am not a gambler) and will be able to just go where ever I want for how long I need. Dreaming is so wonderful.
This is the reason that I made this site, to share my adventures with you and hopefully inspire you to get out and enjoy nature as well. Oh and also to make sure that I can remember where I’ve been 😉
