What is Tandem Trekking?
My name is Lindsey. My husbands name is Kyle. Together we make up Tandem Trekking. I do the writing, he takes the pictures.
Kyle and I thruhiked the Appalachian Trail in 2013. Tandem Trekking began as a way to share those stories. After finishing the Appalachian Trail we moved back out west to Seattle and discovered mountaineering. For a couple of years we lived the life of the weekend warrior, bagged a lot of peaks, and backpacked whenever we could. Then in 2016 we quit our jobs again to thruhike the Pacific Crest Trail. We crossed into Canada on September 20th, 2016, checking another thruhike off our list. Now we are back in Seattle, climbing mountains, rafting river, and hiking trails. We welcome you to live vicariously through our blog posts, photographs, videos and podcasts.
How did you two meet?
Our Story: Kyle and I met in 2011 at the Phoenix Airport (romantic, I know) where we were both waiting to be picked up so we could start volunteering with the American Conservation Experience. It was basically love at first sight, I thought Kyle had a nice smile and an inspiring story and he thought I had a great ass. A month or so later I sprung a crazy idea on him while we lay in our tent somewhere in the Coconino National Forest: What if we hiked the Appalachian Trail together? He agreed instantly. This proves that we are both crazy and thus, perfect for each other (ugh, that was sappy).
Don’t be shy!
