Hi!  I’m Alison and I’m excited to work together.

I’m a North Carolina based travel blogger and backpacking guide who wants to encourage everyone to get out there and explore their world.

You can reach me at alison@explorationsolo.com

My audience is ready to get out there, but need encouragement and advice on how to get started.

They like having a range of options from local day trips to a weekend visiting nearby cities to big adventures on other continents.

I also have an audience that’s excited about exploring the outdoors and getting into hiking and backpacking. With this group, I provide gear and trip ideas from beginner to advanced.

My passion is to help remove all of the obstacles my audience puts on themselves (I need to lose weight and get in shape first, I should find a friend to go with me, I need to research this for a year….etc), and get them out there!

The topics I generally write about include:

  • Local travel ideas for North Carolina and surrounding states
  • Adventure travel
  • Outdoor guidance for hiking and backpacking

I offer content for North Carolina and areas drivable within 5 hours or less including outdoor options like car camping or backpacking.

As a backpacking guide, specializing in beginners, I also understand their concerns with gear, planning, and food.

I’m about facts and empowerment. My audience likes that I do all the research so they can make informed choices.
