In this review I’m going to be comparing two models of Bedrock Sandals, The Classics and The Cairn Pro’s. I’m a big proponent of the “barefoot movement” and try to spend as much time as possible without anything on my feet. This often isn’t practical so I’ve tried a lot of different barefoot style shoes.

This post is designed to go hand in hand with my recently released video review of the Big Agnes Orno UL 0F Sleeping bag. Be sure to check out the video It’s late June 2017 and the next day we’re heading out. Four to five months of hiking through some of the wildest areas the […]
This is a guest post from my good friend Cheesebeard, whilst hiking the CDT together last year he completed his Triple Crown so I’m very happy to have him write the first guest post here on pieonthetrail.com. Pie asked me the other day if I wanted to write something for his blog “Pie on the Trail” and I immediately jumped […]
Hello Friends So there hasn’t been much activity on the blog over the past six months due to me Thru – Hiking the Continental Divide Trail in the summer and travelling in Asia since then. The CDT was a phenomenal experience and I shared some of those experiences in a series of Blogs over at The […]

I’ve been lucky to spend a lot of time in the USA over the past few years. Working at a summer camp in New York state in 2010 and 2011, road tripping in 2014 and Thru Hiking the AT in 2015. There are some points in here I think many Americans may not realise about their wonderful country. Feel free to agree with me, disagree with me and question me in the comments.
I created this video to share how I like to pack my backpack when I go out in the woods. It’s a collaboration between a bunch of cool backpackers on Youtube, check out my video and all the others in the playlist.
Although the hike is a long way off I’m already starting to prepare. I feel a lot of people can benefit from this information whether you’ve completed a thru-hike in the past or not.
In my somewhat limited research for the Annapurna Circuit I didn’t come across much information on what I should bring on the hike. There was some information on what to bring on a hike to Everest Base camp and there are plenty of similarities but here’s what I brought and why. I’m writing this article […]
