About Trust The Trail Podcast
Hey Guys! Thank you SO much for making it to our Patreon page. We've have an awesome time sharing our lives and getting to know so many of you from all over the country.
Trust The Trail Podcast is all about inspiring and motivating YOU to spend more time outdoors. . Our goal is to become full time Outdoor Guides (we have our certifications) and take people out to some amazing places on guided trips all in a 1976 Airstream and live a nomadic lifestyle. We would love to exchange the time in our professions for time to work on our podcast and channel, but we need to know the support is there.
Keeping the Trust the Trail podcast and YouTube channel going also costs money. Hosting fees, mobile data fees, camera gear, editing equipment. Yes, we do make a little money on Youtube. But very little. Probably only a $100 dollars every 6 months.
Even a $2 pledge on Patreon means so much to us.
With additional support from Patrons, we hope to share more information about the places we've camped and explored. Not to mention all the secret places we have found backpacking in some really cool wilderness areas. Detailed maps, mileage, budget, and all kinds of information we've been asked for but we haven't had the time to share.
We also have more opportunities to connect with each of you and answer your questions. Livestream chats, a centralized Q & A, live events, and an invite to go backpacking with us.
The Patreon model has place rewards here to entice you to donate, but if we're both honest... you're here because you understand what we're trying to do with our belief in Trusting the Trail and you think the hours and hours we put into every podcast is worth it! Thank you so much!
