Welcome to The Outdoor Authority!
This website was founded to share what I’ve learned about camping, hiking, fishing, and other outdoor activities as I’ve traveled the world and explored as a wide-eyed 30-something.
I grew up in the northeastern United States and have braved the worst winter has thrown at us, and now I live on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii in pretty much the opposite environment.
I’ve toured the Pacific Northwest, hiked in South America, hopped the Galapagos Islands, and am currently planning to become a full-time RV-er with my wonderful wife.
My goal with The Outdoor Authority is to provide information that will help you make the most of the outdoors:
- Beginner information and essentials
- Survival tips
- Exploring the different types of outdoor gear
- Specific gear reviews
- Lessons from mistakes I’ve made (so you can avoid them)
I always want to hear from you! Please feel free to comment on any article or email me directly using the Contact page.
The world is amazing, so go explore it!
