Hi, I'm Josh

I love being outdoors and enjoy the peaceful energy that it provides people. Life has become too much hustle and bustle and no one has the time or opportunity to relax without a screen glued to their face.
This I feel has caused us to stagnate as people and we go through the motions at work and at home daily, scared to cause a wave or fluctuation. This is why I started Ultralight Packer, a place for people to come talk and share their love of the outdoors.
