Join the Community

TheBackpackerTV started out in 2008 as a way to share our passion for the outdoors with you.  So, it really blew our minds when other people started tuning in and joining in on the conversations. Turns out, there are a lot of people who are interested, inspired or have a deep desire to explore the outdoors. So we invite you to come with us on our Adventures. AND, don’t worry about your experience, we’ll teach ya.

So, we started putting more effort into our videos, photos and articles. We try to be helpful, give insight and go the extra mile to help all those wanting to know more about our unsedentary way of life.

As everything has grown and progressed…so has the time, effort and expenses to keep all this going.  Maintaining this website and keeping the videos flowing can sometimes be a beast! It’s become a full time job and one that we love.

We hope  our website is providing a value, whether that’s the entertainment or the information.  Our website is free for all and will remain that way. Our operating costs however are not free and we are incredibly grateful for the support in whatever from it may come.

You are always welcome at any time to come out and hike with us. Our Full Moon Adventure Trips are guided trips in the most amazing and beautiful places around the Country. Come sign up for one.

Without the ongoing support of each and every one of you: the dreamers, the planners and the fellow outdoor enthusiast’s, none of this would be possible. We wouldn’t have made it this far without all of you and certainly can’t move forward without you either.

Below are some of the ways you can help support and show some love.  You’ll notice most of them don’t cost you a penny! So, love away!

Let us know you are with us

    • Social Media – Follow, Like, Subscribe and follow us on Instagram us so we know you’re here with us.
    • Share – if you like a post, a pic, or a comment, then hit the like button. We feel even more love if you share.  Sharing is the ultimate social love.
    • Sign up for our newsletter – We send email notifications about new posts and where we will be next. On our e-mail subscribers usually get info first. We will never share your info and of course you can opt out anytime.
    • Leave Comments – Nothing is worse than feeling like you are speaking to an empty room.  The comment section on our website is the perfect place for asking simple questions, letting us know if we missed an important point or just chiming in with your thoughts, experiences and stories.


Shop Our Gear Store

Quite possibly the easiest way to put real money in our travel and information fund without costing you any extra pennies! We get questions ALL the time about how to buy outdoor gear on the cheap. Let’s face it, it can be expensive. So we build an online store just for you. is a combination of ALL the MAJOR online gear stores on the Internet. REI, Moosejaw, Altrec and more. They are all in one place. Each day the “daily deals” change making is always a fresh experience.

Send some love by simply sending a few bucks our way

Use the paypal send some  love button below.  We’ll send you a promo code for one of our Full Moon Adventure Trip
