Camping & Hiking Expert Fabio D.
  • Fabio D.

    My name is Fabio - I'm an outdoor enthusiast living in Alaska. I grew up in a mountain town in Switzerland. Hiking, climbing, snowboarding, trail-running and sleeping outside were huge parts of my upbringing.

    In 2012, I decided to quit my job, packed my backpack and travelled around the world for 4 years straight. I cooked meals over camp fires in Siberia, lived in yurts with nomadic eagle hunters in Mongolia, hiked into some remote parts of the Himalayas, hitchhiked and backpacked through New Zealand and Australia, climbed and camped in the beautiful Andes – overall I probably spent equally as many nights in tents and under night skies as I did in hostels.

    On this crazy journey, I fell in love with an island in Alaska and made the vast wilderness of this beautiful place my home base.

    My favorite thing in the world is combining my two biggest passions: Being in the outdoors and snowboarding. Nothing better than a multiday snowboard/winter camping expedition!

    Honest and upfront
    He was very helpful from the beginning and got me deals as soon as I asked for something he found me offers I couldn’t find on my own. When my own idea for what I wanted was too much he found me something a lot more within my price range that is comparable and still great quality. He was upfront about stuff he wasn’t familiar with and let me know he would do some research before giving me a recommendation. He knew the products because he’s actually used them which is nice. I will definitely be coming back here for more of my camping needs and sending all my friends this way. Wish I knew about this site years ago, probably could have saved a lot of time and money finding what I needed.
