Hike Lawson Peak and take a selfie
When you’re slightly terrified of climbing down, take a selfie and buy yourself some time

Hi, I’m Robb Keele, and I created Getgo Outdoors as a way to give back to the outdoor community from whom I’ve learned so much, and to hopefully inspire a few people along the way.

From the day I set out on my first overnight backpacking trip, I’ve been hooked. Since that time I have been working to improve my knowledge, skills, and fitness, all with the goal of getting outdoors as often as I can and having as much fun as possible doing it.

As we all know, when it comes to learning there is no replacement for experience, and that’s how Getgo Outdoors has come to be. Here, I will document my experiences, reporting on the things I’ve learned along the way. In addition to the facts, I’ll share my ideas, stories and opinions on everything from day hikes to extended backpacking adventures to the gear I used to make it happen.

That’s just the beginning of this adventure.

My experiences are unique, and my opinion is only one of many. I always welcome your comments and questions. And if you read something you like, I hope you will share it and help keep the conversation going.

Thanks for visiting, and I look forward to sharing the adventure.

Now, Getgo Outdoors!

    Hi, thanks for stopping by and following my Journeys with Johnbo blog! I read with interest your post on Joshua Tree. It’s on my places to visit. In my day, I spent some time hiking and backpacking with overnights in the park under the stars. These days, however, my idea of “roughing it” is no refrigerator in the hotel room. 🙂

    Thanks again for the follow. I will enjoy getting your emails about new posts on Getgo!

      Hi John,

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Joshua Tree is both amazing and mysterious. I plan on spending a lot more time there in the future figuring out its quirks.

      Loved reading about your visit to Corodado. Sorry San Diego didn’t deliver “Sunny” as promised.

      I look forward to reading about your future adventures!
