Two Guys in the Woods

A guide to getting to camp before dark.

Two guys in the woods is about two guys, that sometime go into the woods, occasionally together. Our website is dedicated to backpacking, camping gadgets, and adventure stories around the camp fire. Mostly it’s an excuse for us to go on hikes, look at camping stuff, and chat.

As Tolkien aficionados we’ve always joked that one of of us is called to by the mountains (hence the dwarf) and one of us the sea (hence the elf). Now that we have hobbits of our own, it’s a chance to share what we’ve learned (from the mistakes we’ve made).
