About Us

Welcome to Castaway Outdoors, where our passion for the great outdoors meets the world of knowledge and adventure. We are a team of dedicated outdoor enthusiasts and writers who are committed to sharing our love for outdoor living, exploration, running on trails and gear with the world. Our mission is simple: inspire, educate and equip outdoor enthusiasts of all levels with the information and resources they need to make the most of their outdoor experiences.

Our Story

It all began with a shared love for nature and a desire to help others discover the beauty and wonders of the outdoors. Our founder, Aspen Brooks, spent years exploring the wilderness, from the rugged peaks of the Rockies to the serene shores of remote lakes. Along the way, Aspen Brooks realized that there was a wealth of knowledge and expertise within the outdoor community waiting to be shared.

In 2018, Castaway Outdoors was born, with a vision to create comprehensive, informative and engaging ebooks that cover all aspects of outdoor living and gear. We wanted to provide outdoor enthusiasts with a one-stop resource where they could find expert advice, detailed guides and gear recommendations to enhance their outdoor adventures.

Our Team

At Castaway Outdoors, our team is the heart and soul of everything we do. We are a diverse group of writers, adventurers, trail runner and gear enthusiasts, each bringing a unique perspective and skill set to the table. Our writers have hiked, biked, climbed, run and camped in some of the most challenging environments on Earth. They are not just writers, but seasoned experts, who have experienced the outdoors in all its glory and adversity.

Taking part to numerous trail runs, among which twice finisher of the 170km UTMB in Chamonix France, one of our authors knows first hand what it means to spend 2 nights in the mountains in a row, with very few gear except his light bag, alone, only relying on his headlight, while going from 500 meters elevation to above 2’500. Living outdoor, going from good weather to bad while managing sleep deprivation and fatigue makes you better consider the survival and hiking skills you should possess before leaving civilisation behind.

Our commitment to excellence extends beyond our writing team. We have a dedicated group of editors, photographers and designers who work tirelessly to ensure that every ebook we produce is not only informative, but also visually captivating. We believe that a great ebook should be a feast for the eyes as well as the mind.
