Hey there!

I'm Rebecca and I can't wait to share my knowledge and experience with you in our backcountry navigation bootcamp.

If you're here, it may be because you're looking to learn valuable skills to make your outdoor adventures safe and fun.

I'm here to help 🙌🏽

I know that things like reading a map, using a compass, and navigating with your smartphone in the backcountry can feel a bit intimidating. So, I've developed an easy, trail-tested framework that I'm excited to share with you.

I'm peeling back the curtain and sharing the systems and processes that I've used for the past 10 years as a guide and outdoor educator.

In this online self-paced bootcamp, I'll teach you everything you need to know about backcountry navigation- from identifying the terrain features on a map to planning a route on your Garmin inReach.

When you finish this 3 lesson program you'll be able to navigate with your phone, read a map, and use a compass all with confidence.

You'll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing exactly where you are and where you're going, so you can enjoy your adventure.

Are you ready to take your outdoor adventures to the next level?

"I found Rebecca through one of her free workshops and then drove to Laramie to meet her in person. She spent an afternoon hiking with me. In just a few hours she showed how to read a map, use the compass on my phone and set up my Garmin inReach. She has so much knowledge that she's always willing to share online and in-person."

You might be wondering...

I've asked those questions myself.

That's why I'll be alongside you every step of the way.

Throughout our bootcamp you'll have access to me to ask any of your questions via email, text message and DM.

"I started hiking when I turned 50, before then I was scared to hike, worried I'd get lost or hurt. Rebecca's YouTube videos have taught me so much. Now I'm planning to walk the El Camino with my daughter and granddaughter. Hike Like A Woman has given me the courage to plan this trip. "
