About Me

About Robert

When I was a child, I loved being outdoors. Growing up in the country led me on several adventures. Most of the day was spent exploring, walking through the fields of tall brush, trees, and various small hills. As an adult, I still love the great outdoors.

As I have become older, I still love being outdoors and hiking gives me the adventure I need. It allows me to breathe, explore and take in all the world’s beauty. No phone reception, cars going by, crowds of people, and the best of all, no computer screens. The only thing that stopped me was sprained ankles and foot pain.

One thing you need to pay attention to is your footwear. It doesn’t matter where you are, the terrain you’re or what you are doing. Footwear is very important. I can’t count the number of times I’ve sprained and /or twisted my ankles. Sneakers are good, but they aren’t good on all terrain. A good pair of hiking shoes or boots can take you further.

A Better Experience

Hiking can be fun and a learning experience at the same time. When I’m walking up the trail, my head is in the trees, sky, and off in the distance. Not paying attention at all to where I’m stepping.

I can’t count the number of times I’ve stepped on a rock, tree root, or loose earth and have injured myself somehow. Depending on the nature and severity of the injury, I would have to turn back or worst yet, get a friend to help me back along the trail to the car. Was I mad, hell yeah I was? I’ve ruined my friend’s hiking experience and I’ve put a halt to my adventures for the day.

Paying attention and taking precautions is always the way to go. That’s why buying the right shoes is the best call.

What I Want For You

I want you to go hiking. Get outdoors and get moving. Find an adventure and go see the beautiful creations and scenery that this earth has to show you. Go places that you haven’t been to. Take pictures, lots of them!

But first, find the right footwear and other accessories that you may need on your adventure because you can’t go without the proper gear. Find it here on hiking shoes and accessories.

Now go and have some fun. See all the things.
