Welcome to The Outdoor Types

By Heather & Darren

Welcome to our new home!

As you may know, we started as a more profanely named site several years ago. It was along the lines of “Fudge Yeah Camping.” Only we didn’t use “Fudge.” We used the word. The big one. The queen-mother of dirty words. The “F-dash-dash-dash” word!

While it was a funny name, and even more fun to randomly yell out while camping, we wanted something slightly less alienating and more encompassing of all the outdoor things we enjoy.

After much debating about URLs and feeling like all the good ones were taken, we accidentally landed on theoutdoortypes.com and boom: A new website was born.

What’s the same

Aside from the new name and address, things around here will be more or less the same:

  • Camping site and gear reviews
  • Hiking trail and gear reviews
  • Camping and hiking tips
  • Camping and hiking how tos

What’s also the same is our overall approach. We’re now experienced hikers and campers, but we’re also still learning. We want to share that knowledge and experience with others and be entertaining about it. As always, this site is based on our opinions and experiences. We’re not trying to be everything to everyone. When someone else has more information or greater detail, we’ll point you in the right direction.

We also still work busy day jobs and devote time to this blog when we have it. While that means sporadic posting, I also hope it means posts that are more meaningful and that say something.

What’s different

One big change is comments. We got so much spam on the previous site and it was ridiculous and time consuming to keep up with, even with anti-spam plugins. We’ve moved it all over to our Facebook page. Visit us there!

We also have new Instagram and Pinterest pages.

Any questions or comments? You know where to find us. In the meantime, pull up a chair around the fire ring and help yourself to a cold beer in the cooler.
