TrailChick.com Terms

This website is a true labor of love. I love the outdoors and I love doing more good in the world, making people laugh, and connecting them with incredible products and stories. I HATE popups, annoying ads, and all sorts of other things that detract from a website experience. I am after all, a web developer and UX professional in my daily life! Here’s a roundup of what you’ll see on this site:

Gear Reviews

I’ve never been paid to do gear reviews and my reviews are 100% my own opinion. All of the gear I review has been purchased, tested, scuffed up, and loved by me! I have sometimes been able to get product samples for testing but it’s rare and if I do, I will fully disclose it. And hey, if someone knows how to sample products, let me know! I love testing!!

Advertising

As mentioned earlier, I pretty much hate popup ads and superfluous advertising. Superfluous: there’s a new great word of the day!! As such, I don’t sell advertising space on my site. I DO; however, promote some of my affiliates, so read on for more details…

Affiliate Marketing

I do participate in affiliate marketing, which means I can earn a small commission from manufacturers when products are purchased through my referrals. There is no cost to you for this and hey, if I can pass on savings and special information to my readers, why not!? Believe me, I don’t get rich on this, but I do occasionally get to buy a 6-pack of beer with my earnings. Score!! The only “advertising” you will see on my site are promotions for my affiliates as well as related products in my gear review section. Since I love every piece of gear I review AND the company behind it, I have no problem promoting them. I simply enjoy connecting people to fantastic merchandise. So hey, like my review? Buy it from my site! I get a beer!!!

Bottom Line

I’m just an independent gal doing fun outdoor stuff. I’m not affiliated with any gear companies or any trail organizations. I love to share my stories, recommend awesome gear that promotes good stuff, and do my best to inspire each and every person out there to love your life, live your adventure, and make the world a better place!!

Thank you so much for your support! Have a fantastic day and happy adventuring!!
