Hey there! My name is Katie. I hail from suburbs of Philadelphia. My husband serves in the Army and we have two kids. One thing I love about this crazy military life is exploring all the places the Army takes us with my kids and husband. “I go into the woods and I am home” This John Muir quote rings true in my heart! Since my early years, the outdoors has been a place of exploration, peace, adventure, beauty, and wonder to me. I’ve always been excited to see the wild place around me - and I am always excited to connect with others who want to get out and explore wild places too!

Favorite Adventure: “Favorite” is a hard word. So top three: Backpacking with my hubs thru the Enchanted Valley on the Olympic Penisula in Washington State. Kayaking down the Owyhee River in Oregon. Trekking thru the India Himalayans. Okay, four becasue, my kids are great. Any time I get outside with my kids and they expereicne the wonder and the beauty of nature.

Favorite Trail Snack: Jerky. Almonds. Apples. Trader Joe’s canned Mackerel… if its a longer hike and lunch is involved.

I always pack a bandana, snacks, extra clothes for my kids.

Hey y’all, Sara here! Originally from Oklahome but currently servining in the world's greatest Air Force as a K9 Instructor located in the beautiful Sun City of El Paso, TX! You could say I've always been down for adventure. I love to do just about anything as long as I'm outside! I spent a number of years up in the frozen tundra of North Dakota and got to venture in the Minnesota wilderness, most of my time doing winter sports or kayak and camping. Once I moved to the Sun City, the mountains became my friend. I ventured on many trails and there's still more to explore!

Favorite Adventure: Back in January, I hiked the Organ Needle with this awesome group! It was very challenging and at times scary. However, the views made it all worth it.

Favorite Trail Snack: I always enjoy some craisins or almonds. And when it’s a big hike, PB&J all the way!

I always pack coffee, because coffee is life!
