Welcome to SoundHiking.com. Our goal is to be a useful resource for hikers and backpackers, especially in the Puget Sound area. This includes reviews of local hikes, useful guides with tips and gear reviews to make your time outside easier and more enjoyable.
Part of my goal for this site is to use it for passive income by reviewing and recommending products that I feel are helpful. I have a full time job (data analysis) and a 4 year old daughter that, combined, take up most of my time. Having a side-income that is flexible and I can pick up off and on seemed like a reasonable thing to try. Along with that comes the requirement by the FTC that if I use affiliate links I need to say that explicitly.
This site uses affiliate links from various sites that may generate a commission for Sound Hiking should you follow that link and ultimately purchase something. For example, As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases but the price isn't any different than it would be had you made the purchase directly. You should see a red bit of text at the top of any post that I use affiliate links that makes reference to that as well.
