I Heart Pacific Northwest Review: Bushka’s Kitchen Backpacking Meals

Earlier this year, we sent Lisa from I Heart Pacific Northwest two of our Bushka freeze dried meals - our flagship Unstuffed Pepper and our second carnivore meal, the Hearty Harvest Bowl

I love Lisa's story, which is why I reached out to her. After moving from Kansas City to Portland, she discovered the thrill of the wilderness and has been sharing her adventures through her blog (as well as publishing two guide books! BUSY LADY!) She has been capturing her outdoor adventures for over 12 years and has an absolute wealth of information on her page. Seriously! Check it out if you're in the Pacific Northwest.
