Back Story

The developer (Livio) created this app because he was a fan of trekking with an organization called Highlander Adventure in Eastern Europe. However, he found some aspects of their treks problematic. Specifically organizing the treks by date so that he could avoid conflicting trek timelines (hence the calendar feature) and the inability to find trekking partners as well as pre-trek rides and logistics (hence the forum feature). Then the app expanded with new requests, such as world map pins, online/offline maps with GPS tracks and more.

Livio continues to expand the app’s features/versions based on his trekking experiences on other continents and user input. Want something? Contact Livio below.

Disclaimer 😉

What this app is not! This app is not intended to be the next Scrabble Dating App;-) Yes there is a forum for you to find trekking buddies. No it is not intended for you to find your next x-wife/x-husband. So please be respectful and keep on trekking.
