The purpose of this webpage is a place where I can write down our trips and experiences. This allows me the time to reflect after a trip and figure out what I enjoyed and what went well. Hopefully the posts will inspire you to get out there to try it yourself and give you some idea of how to plan and what to expect.
While our current situation is relatively stable and we have the skills to ensure our financial stability going forward, my efforts here remain a hobby. The work put into the site is very time consuming so I am limited by my day job. Helping the site grow or supporting us just provides that much more motivation in how I divide my time.

- Patreon voted hikes and subsequent reports within reason

3) Lastly, I have a paypal link where you can contribute whatever you like.
