Send me your questions about hiking, backpacking, gear, or any trip I write about at The Big Outside.
I can help you plan the best backpacking, hiking, or family adventure of your life.
For more than two decades, as a former field editor for Backpacker magazine and running this blog, I’ve made a living identifying, planning, and writing about great trips. That’s why The Big Outside is a uniquely authoritative resource for outdoor adventures.
Now you can tap into my expertise.
Got a question about hiking, backpacking, planning a family adventure, gear, or any topic or trip I write about at The Big Outside? Email it to me at email@example.com. For $60, I’ll answer your questions via email to help ensure your trip is a success. I will also provide a telephone consult for $75. Write to me and I will tell you whether I can answer your question (I usually can). You may find helpful information on this page and my All Trips page, and in my skills stories and gear reviews.
This page has links to menus of all of my Ask Me posts, in which I share my response to a reader question. The links below organize those posts in categories: Family Adventures, Gear, National Parks, Backpacking, Hiking, Skills, Paddling, International, and Skiing/Snow. If I answer your question, I might share it in a blog post, using only your first name and city, with your permission.
This blog and website is my full-time job and I rely on the support of readers. If you like what you see here, please help me continue producing The Big Outside by making a donation using the Support button at the top of the left sidebar or below. Thank you for your support.
