First Assignment Collaboration: Best Backpacking Knots

I was assigned to a “best backpacking knots” story for Backpacker. Since I know virtually nothing about any advanced knots, I turned to my brother, Dan, who is an Eagle Scout and a Mountain Bike Director at a Boy Scout camp in Maryland.

So, for my first journalistic collaboration, I worked with my chemistry major Eagle Scout brother! This is his first brush with journalism, and he was fantastic to interview. He took all the photos (which are fantastic, by the way) and I wrote the text with his guidance.

Check out Backpacker’s Facebook page for another view of the article, which is being shared by a lot of outdoor recreation companies and backcountry associations! If you “like” the page, you can also see other content I created/produced. These stories I write for the website can also be seen on the “news stories” tab on the homepage of my blog.

Big thanks to Backpacker for allowing us to collaborate on this.. and thanks again to my brother!
