What kind of outing does a professional adventurer pursue on her day off? For TB&C Ambassador Marley Parker, hiking a steep, rugged trail with her brother (through slick mud and pouring rain) is the perfect way to reset, and to recognize the perks of a perennial bond.
One of our incredible interns from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill takes us through her first backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. Feeling worn down from the semester, Olivia and a group of her friends decided to plan a spring break trip to the mountains to energize them through the second half of their semester. This incredible trip was made possible thanks to TB&C’s rental program!
