About Mama (a.k.a. Base Camper)
An engineer, writer, and outdoor enthusiast, Mama lives for the solitude and beauty of nature. Before saying “I do” at age 40, Mama backpacked the trails of the American Southeast, Southwest, and Midwest. In the absence of opportunities with friends, she tripped solo. Today, her time in nature still provides solitude and beauty. But it also provides opportunities to forge deeper connections with family and friends.
Mama is not a marathoner, a speed hiker, a top mile-maker, an ultralighter, the owner of the best gear collection in the universe, or a record-holder of any kind. She's just an average working mom who loves her family and loves the great outdoors.
Preserving wild places begins with connection. By sharing nature with others, Mama seeks to inspire others to connect with the wilderness and with one another. Join Mama for tips, stories, and trip reports as we share our passion for the outdoors in large and small doses.
