About Us

Tom (1960HikerDude)

I’m Tom Swenson (aka 1960HikerDude), an avid outdoor enthusiast and life-long New England resident. We are very fortunate to live in an incredibly diverse region with four distinct seasons. This provides us endless possibilities for outdoor excursions. Over the past four decades, I’ve traveled extensively in our beautiful region.

My other passion is digital media. I have been producing digital content since 1995, professionally since 1999. Recent years have seen rapid development in broadband Internet, social media, video sharing and and point-of-view videography. These technologies provide an exciting opportunity to create a very new video guidebook for my fellow outdoor enthusiasts.

Instead of passively reading about a possible cycling, hiking or paddling location with one or two photos. You can now enjoy an immersive multimedia experience. Thanks to 21st Century technology, it really is “the next best thing to being there”.

Most importantly, this website is all about YOUR experiences. My job is to document and curate information for your adventures. In this regard, your feedback essential and is most welcome.

See YOU outdoors!
