Our Team is ready to lead

It’s been months in the making and we’re just getting started.  But I am very excited to introduce Our Team here at Trail Sherpa, or at the very least the founding members.

The concept I had in my head was simple: I wanted to build a team of my favorite outdoor bloggers and bring them together on Trail Sherpa to collectively create and share the best hiking and backpacking adventures, test new gear, develop recipes for the best trail food, and explore the various aspects of trail life. 

And that is exactly what we’ve done.  I can’t express how exciting it is to surround yourself with such a rich collective of outdoor knowledge.  These Sherpas know their stuff!

We have Tom Mangan, of Two Heel Drive fame herding cats as our Content Editor.  Joining us from the start are Rebecca Sowards-Emmerd of Calipidder.com, Jeff Hester of SoCalHiker.net, Tim & Robin of AppalachiaAndBeyond.com, John Roan of MountainUltralight.com, and Brian Green of BrianGreen.net.  We have a few more bloggers that we will be introducing in the coming days and we plan to continue to build the team moving forward.

I have challenged our Sherpas with the mission of creating the most thought provoking content about trail life.  I want our trail reports to take you farther, the gear reviews to lead you to the perfect gear for your adventures, and the blog posts to create engaging conversations that we can all participate in and learn from.

So starting today, you will begin to see posts from our Sherpas and I hope you will find value in what we have to say.  You can meet the members of Our Team  here and connect to each of them across the web.  We’ve made it easy for you by linking to their websites and social profiles on the Our Team page and in their author boxes which appear at the bottom of each post.

Please help me welcome them to the Trail Sherpa family!

    Love the site and the concept behind it, but FYI the “create your profile” pop-up is SUPER annoying on desktop but even moreso on mobile devices. Otherwise, welcome to the dub dub dub.

    • Thanks for the feedback.  The pop up should expire after first visit and you’re right, it is annoying on mobile.  We’ll look at tweaking some of those settings.

    • I’ve modified some settings so that you should only see it one time.  Thanks again for the feedback.

  • And so the journey begins. Woohoo.

    • Yes it does!  Question really is “Which Sherpa is the first to write a post that garners more than 100 comments?” – #settingthebarhigh

    A social network for outdoor enthusiasts, a great concept. Let’s make it happen!
