The “backyard project” philosophy has been around for a while but this is the first time we’ve seen it explained and documented so well. The long and the short is…you don’t have to travel to far away lands to find new lines and adventure. You can often find plenty of adventure in your own backyard if you’re willing to look!
Thanks for sharing Justin and good luck on the rest of the project!
