I recently came across an outdoor “project” site that I believe over-shared outdoor information. I ask my readers to please be responsible in sharing information found on the ExploringtheWest website. One ethical rule I live by is to minimally post information, allowing for others to explore cool areas and experience things first hand. Additionally, this other “outdoor project” is asking people to join and pay to support their cause. ExploringtheWest is completely free. It is hopefully giving readers new places to explore and basic information to get you heading in the right direction. If too much information is shared or photos over tell the story, you the explorers, lose the excitement found in your new adventure.

I am an Oregon resident who loves the outdoors. I love to see the west and have taken many different roadtrips. I can help with hiking information, campground information etc. I am not an expert, but find a lot of guidebooks limiting, and am happy to share my own personal adventures. I can post pics of places we have been from campgrounds, A-frames, roads, etc. If you have a question, ask. I have a huge library of outdoor information/guides and am happy to share whatever I can. I can give advice on what travel books I recommend, how to find good hiking trails, permits to buy etc. I love canoeing and can recommend lakes to go to throughout the entire state of Oregon. Let me know if I can help. If you want to share some of your own adventures, that would be great too!
