Chicken of the Woods
  • Bob Rogers

    Camping started at an early age for me as both my parents and grandparents were outdoor enthusiasts. My first memory is hiking in Maine at about 6 yrs old. Day hiking and car camping kept me busy until my 40s. Then I discovered backpacking.

    I've thru-hiked the STS (Susquehannack Trail System); an 83 mile loop in north central PA. I've completed the Allegheny East Trail in central PA; a 42 mile loop. One of my "go-to" places is the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area in WV.

    This year (2021), I hiked the first 167.5 miles of the Appalachian Trail, including the 7.8 mile Approach Trail. I've done overnights on the A.T. from Springer Mtn to Port Clinton, PA.

    Currently, I'm working on reducing my pack weight further. I hope to thru-hike the entire A.T. in either 2022 or 2023. From there, I hope to do both the PCT and the CDT. If all goes well, I may even try the North Country Trail.

    Also on the bucket list is a visit to all of the national parks.

    Unsure to Super Confident
    As some one that is starting out on camping, it can become overwhelming with what to purchase. It can also be worrisome when deciding on a product to know if it is the right product for you and the quality of that product. Bob took all that away from me. I told him I am a newbie, what my plans are, and what my future plans might become. Bob is very friendly and backs up his selections with real life experience. I dont know where I would be with Bob's knowledge and advice. I am now going into my first camping trip with my wife confident and excited.

    Bob, a king in the realm of camping
    With today’s climate anything can happen. I needed a new tent and never bought one on my own. - I’m a stylist here so I’m always busy. So a last minute job , that involves camping and the tent I owned had broke and I had less than five days. Bob came to my assistance with much knowledge, accuracy and professionalism. That only a royal member could possess. And that was Bob! May your future be ever prosperous and filled with wonder. Cheers

    Bob is the BEST!
    We are newbie’s in the hiking world. My mom got a wild hair to hike part of the Appalachian Trail. So Bob has been my life line for what to get and pack for this trip. He is super knowledgeable about this trail as well. Thanks Bob

    We found what I was looking for.
    I saw a folding table on a YouTube and didn't have much information due to the fact that the video was made overseas. Language was an issue. Bob was persistent in helping me. And I received a better deal. Lef a tip for his help. Thank you from a very satisfied customer.
