Backpacking in Escalante Nat'l Monument
  • Kael Van Buskirk

    If there is one thing I could not live without it would be the ability to go outside. I have learned many priceless lessons about myself and the world around me through self-guided excursions in stunning locations. It is in qualities such as the silent ripple of the rocks, the whipping morning wind, the grit under my nails, the echo of a wren, or the fresh sage-scented dry air that I find what fuels my creativity and what makes me appreciate life for what it is.

    A new hobby aided by a new friend
    Being a novice camper, Kael did an amazing job pointing me into the right direction of where to go! Kael was more than willing to listen to my wants and needs including my favorite color - a small but appreciated gesture. I felt like I was talking to a friend not just a support expert. I couldn’t be more excited to tackle my new hobby now that Kael has assisted me in getting what I need! I have a better idea of what I need regardless of whether I bought it this time or not!! Quick to respond, so so kind, interested in you and enthusiastic to help :)

    Was like talking to an old friend by the campfire
    Very approachable. I had a million questions, being somewhat still new to the hobby, and Kael answered every one of them. Sent me tents, sleeping bags, water filtration devices, and backpacking shoes. All of which were greatly priced and a range of options. Had a few laughs and talked about passed down gear from relatives. 5 star customer service for sure.

    This man deserves a raise
    Kael not only helped me pick the exact gear I was looking for based on price and function, he also helped me pick a great color! Overall killed it and I am looking forward to working with him in the future. He's also a ridiculous goofball but don't let that stop you ;)
