In October of 2008, Kirk and I moved the blog from its previous home to WordPress. It was so much better, easier to use and reader-friendly. But ya know…5 years of blogging does kind of push things waaaayyyy down into the archives! Digging way back into it is like watching how we eat, how we shoot photos, how we blog – it all changed so much! I am glad I can say that I am still here 5 years later as well. I was also making videos sometimes. Some were well shot, others I filmed solo and were not so hot, but hey, it was fun!
But also…October 2008 was a time when a lot of people were feeling very nervous. I picked a “great” time to move the blog I can tell you! The economy was tanking rapidly but in the end it all worked out. If anything, more people started backpacking and hiking due to it! 2008 had a lot of simple themes to say the least.
