Are You Ready for a Walk in the Parks?

Hi! We are Brad and Ladona Stork and we’re here to help you plan a National Park Vacation that most people only dream about.

We just passed the 1/2 way point on our goal to hike and camp in every US National Park. We have explored 34 of the 63 National Parks so far. When we visit a National Park, we don’t just do a drive through with a quick photo shoot. We camp in the park’s campgrounds, hike the trails, talk to the rangers and explore the distant corners.

Here we share our best tips and stories to help you create a trip that is filled with adventure and a lifetime of memories. Just click on the map below to start exploring our amazing National Parks!

Our Top Hiking And Camping Product Reviews

With decades of hiking and camping under our belt, we have lots of gear! We don’t always feel like we need the newest and hottest camping and hiking gear when we head outdoors. What we do want is gear that will last us decades.

We want gear that will serve us really well, holding up through a wide variety of conditions.  Most of all we value our comfort, which is what the right gear is meant to do. And the product reviews we share reflect that philosophy. 

If you value quality over hype, then these product reviews are meant for you.

When it comes to camping we are up for any adventure. We’ve flown to Alaska with just a duffel bag of camping gear and canoed the boundary waters. We do enjoy a luxury trip where we can load the truck with everything but the kitchen sink just as much as a minimalist trip. And everywhere we go includes a lot of hiking and fishing! That means we use the gear we talk about in our reviews.
