Down to earth guidance.

Whether you’re setting out on a 50-mile trek or planning an afternoon stroll, it’s nice to know what to expect—but not in a snooty TMI kind of way.

 

How this whole thing started.

This is Dayna Del Mar. She’s a pretty happy person, but 2016 was a low point for her. She had just gotten out of a long-term relationship—and she lost most of her friends in the breakup. Dayna knew she wanted to get outside, so she set an ambitious goal (that’s kinda her thing): to conquer an 11-day trek in the Himalayas along the Annapurna Sanctuary in Nepal. To prepare, she signed on for the #52hikechallenge and started exploring the trails outside of Portland, Oregon. But she was lonely, and she realized she didn’t really know what she was doing. After several setbacks and #trailfails, Dayna had a revelation: What if there was a platform that could give her the guidance she needed, when she needed it, and help her make new friends along the way? Frankly, she was surprised such a thing didn’t exist already! That’s when PackDen was born.
