Backpacking Adventures is my own personal website created to share my experiences and opinions related to backpacking and hiking. I am not, nor will I ever claim to be, an expert on these subjects. All information provided is based on my experience, my personal opinion and is provided purely for entertainment purposes.

Backpacking and hiking can be dangerous and have potential hazards involving risk of injury or even death. It is the responsibility of the participant in these activities to understand the risks involved, and take the needed precautions. By participating in these types of activities, you personally assume all of the risks of property damage, personal injury or death, and agree to hold myself and my websites harmless from any liability as a result of your interpretation or use of any of the information provided within or linked to from these pages.

If you click a link in articles or posts written by me and it delivers you to a website selling that product (e.g. Amazon.com, etc.) you can assume that I get a small commission from that website should you buy the product. I will only include links to items I have personally used (after purchasing with my own money) and believe to be a good product. The potential commission in no way affects my opinion of the product as I am writing about the product after my opinion was formed.

Additionally, Backpacking Adventures is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Backpacking Adventures. You will see ads located on different pages throughout the site.
