Amanda Outside

hey there, welcome!

I’m Amanda.

Most days you can find me planning a backcountry camping trip, snuggling with my ultra-warm sleeping bag in a tent somewhere, or perfecting the backcountry pancake.

After growing up on the East Coast of the United States, I decided the winter of 2013 to spontaneously drive out to California with a friend.

I’ve been living “out West” ever since, eventually landing in my current home in Utah.

I teach women who are totally into hiking how to start backpacking through educational videos and trip vlogs.

When I’m not busy camping and exploring the backcountry, you can catch me on my computer editing upcoming YouTube videos, dancing to Queen songs around the house, drinking wine out of a Hydroflask tumbler (even at home) or watching any show with Julia Louis Dreyfus. (She’s hilarious.)

If you’re dying to hear more, below are five things you might not know about me.

  1. I have a B.S in Chemistry and Engineering (I’m a total nerd for sciency stuff)

  2. When I was 20 years old, I rode a bicycle across the United States.

  3. After college, I bought a one-way flight to Spain and hiked the Camino de Santiago by myself.

  4. I love cacti and the color pink.  

  5. My two favorite foods are artisan pizzas and homemade fresh-out-of-the-oven brownies.
