Hike Hacker Launches!


While reading the Best Hikes Blog earlier, I saw that Tom Mangan, of Two-Heel Drive fame, has launched a new site called Hike Hacker, in honor of Life Hacker, which promises to “reboot your hiking life”.

The site is designed to cover everything under the sun in the hiking world, and there already all kinds of posts in such categories as “Food & Nutrition”, “Travel”, “Gear”, and more. Hike Haker hopes to gather all those wonderfully handy tips that we’ve learned over the years on the trail, and put them in one easy to reference spot. There is even a place for us to “Lend a Hack”, making it a simple process to share some of your best hiking tips.

There are already some excellent posts, with tips on how to wash your down sleeping bag, information on backpacking stoves, and even how to organize your gear closet on a budget.

Hike Hacker looks like a very promising site already, and with help from the hiking community on the Internet, it’ll soon become a treasure trove of useful information. Looks great so far Tom! Keep up the great work!

  1. No problem Tom. This is such a great idea, it’s a wonder someone didn’t come up with sooner. Makes perfect sense, and I can’t think of anyone better suited to be running it.

  2. I haven’t had a chance to swing by your blog yet this morning DSD. You’re on my daily rounds as well, so I’ll have swing over and read your latest post.

    I always appreciate your thoughtful writing and philosophical musings. 🙂
