About Halfway Anywhere

Hi Friends!

Seven years ago I set out on my first long-distance hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. Before, during, and afterward, I wrote about the trail in hopes of sharing my experience and helping others wanting to hike the PCT. Never could I have imagined that I would still be hiking and sharing my adventures with you all today. It kind of just happened.

Backpacking quickly went from "this thing I did this one time", to "a thing I do sometimes", to "a thing I do all the time", to "the thing that literally defines my life and who I am". It's been an interesting (and quite scenic) journey.

Halfway Anywhere has grown beyond the simple (and free) internet blog it was born as now, maintaining it costs more than I would like to admit. By supporting Halfway Anywhere on Patreon, you're not simply getting access to perks and exclusive content - you're helping to keep Halfway Anywhere online and helping me to continue bringing content to you.

What I will do with your money:
- Pay the bills for Halfway Anywhere. This includes the costs for website hosting, domain registration, an email manager, behind-the-scenes services to keep the site fast and secure, and the occasional freelance maintenance to fix things I do not yet know how to do myself.
- Purchase and review new gear so that you can be sure that your gear choices are the right ones.
- Continue to run my hiker surveys and hopefully expand them to other trails around the country and the globe.
- Research, plan, hike, and then document hikes so that you know exactly what you need to do in order to be successful and don't waste time doing things like trying to figure out where you are supposed to cache water for yourself or where exactly you'll be able to resupply.

Thank you very much for your support! I truly appreciate it (as clearly indicated by my use of bold lettering), and every little bit really helps out!
