WURL - The Wasatch Ultimate Ridge Linkup

WURL - The Wasatch Ultimate Ridge Linkup

Rather than fixating myself on a mountain on the other side of the world, the WULR set my sights on the mountains right in my backyard. If I could complete all 35 miles, 18,000 ft of vertical, and 21 peaks… Forever, I’d be able to look up and see my mountains and remember my day and a half on the WURL.

Whoopie Slings!

Whoopie Slings!

Whoopie slings are my single favorite Haven Tents™ accessory. They weigh next to nothing and give you much more flexibility in choosing your site to hang.

Haven Tent hammock winter camp with PowerPump

The Joy of Camping With a Pump 💨

The PowerPump is lightweight and powerful, but also works as a backup battery. 3600 mAh isn't a ton of juice... but the majority of my trips are 1 or 2 nighters, where a single recharge of my phone would really be nice.

Yellowstone Backcountry

Our Haven Tents were the perfect way to end long days in the saddle. Each morning we woke to beautiful vistas, and spent the first hour or so looking for our horses!
