We always said we wanted to go on an extended journey, to be in the wilderness for longer. By day nine of our 655 kilometre journey along the Australian Alpine Walking Track, we found the hike challenging enough without the burden of 25 kilogram backpacks.
Not everyone was doing it tough. Each time we met new hikers conversation revolved around gear, weight and destination. We had already seen people using lightweight gear and had a few items ourselves, but it was on this journey we realised the full potential of travelling with simplicity, freedom and comfort.
The seed of an idea was beginning to germinate. We needed to change the way we moved. If we wanted to hike forlonger, we needed to journey lighter.
Our inspiration to shed the heavy load has become an invitation to you to join us in our quest for simplicity, freedom and comfort. Become part of the lightweight movement.
