Camping & Hiking Expert Alex L
Campfire cookin' in the Black Forest
  • Alex L

    Hey I'm Alex! I'm a born and bred city kid, but thanks to my parents throwing me into the Scouting program to "keep me outta trouble", I got to experience a LOT of the great outdoors and build up some pretty serious wilderness survival & outdoor recreation skills. I'm an Eagle Scout, and worked many summers at Scout Camp, living in a tent in the woods and teaching everything from rock climbing to backpacking & plenty more. From camp, to hiking El Camino de Santiago, to backcountry treks in the U.S. and Europe, I've spent years of my life at this point sleeping in a tent or hitting the trail, and hoping for many more.

    Beyond my outdoors and hiking experiences, my professional background is in environmentalism -- I spent the last 3 years working as an advocate, fighting for better protections of our public lands, and clean air and water. Gotta make sure we have protected and clean places to put our gear to good use!

    I'm all about bang for your buck -- whether your budget is high or low, my specialty is making it WORK to get the best stuff for the best price possible. I'm also a firm believer in sustainability, so I can always point you to more earth friendly options. Ultimately, I believe in buying things that last, because it's good for us, our wallets, and our Earth. Wanna know more? I've got plenty to share -- just ask!

    Couldn't have done it without him - HIGHLY recommend
    Despite some issues with the website itself, (NOT Alex's fault!) Alex worked hard to find me the items I needed and at a great price - very responsive and knowledgeable. SUPER happy with my purchase, thank you!

    Alex lola was very kind and helpful and of course very respectful
    He took the time to get a good idea of what I wanted and needed the tent I purchased to look like, how much room I was looking for and made sure the ones he showed me were of good quality and not just some quick picks that were completely the opposite of what I was looking for he never rushed me into making a decision I would later regret once I received the tent and realized what I had actually purchased I was very happy and pleased to have the opportunity to work with alex lola in my search to find the perfect tent for me thank you so much alex lola for all your help I really appreciate you patiently and understandably assisting me and taking the time out of your probably busy life. I would be honored to be the person referring you and this company/business to anyone and everyone I know who have been looking into buying a new tent
