Hi guys! I’m Derek – a lifelong camper, hiker, and climber, born in Dallas, Texas.
I spent my childhood years in an RV with my parents, running around, camping under the stars, and even playing with fire even though my mom told me not to. (Mom if you are reading this, sorry about that)
As long as I can remember I have been in and out of tents and campgrounds like a second home. All that time has led to real-life experience and knowledge that most people just don’t have.
Fast forward to high school. Ashley and I met and fell in love like it was natural. Not only with each other but with our mutual love for Mother Earth and the outdoors.
Our adventures together have taken us around the world and back again, and I’m not talking about Paris. Our adventures always focus on getting outside climbing and hiking all day, s’mores around a campfire, and a night under the stars.
We don’t just love the outdoors, we eat, sleep, and breathe it.
All that brings us here and now. Ashley and I started Know Nothing Nomads after seeing how much false information was out there about camping, hiking, and climbing. We decided that we couldn’t sit on the sidelines knowing that people were being misinformed and misdirected instead of being shown the proper way of doing things outdoors.
So, that’s what we do here. We share our knowledge, experience, passions, and adventures with readers like you. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.
