Outfitting the PA Wilds: Roambler
Part of the Outfitting the PA Wilds series
When you travel, it makes a world of difference to have someone as your guide, showing you the ins and outs of the region and giving you the expertise you need to have the best trip possible. What if you could always have those seasoned guides along for your journeys?
That is exactly what Roambler seeks to do. Rambler is an online peer-to-peer listing and booking platform that links customers to experiences. These customers, called “Seekers,” can find people who host experiences, called “Hosts,” throughout Pennsylvania.
Traveling can have many barriers to access, whether it’s not knowing where to go, being overwhelmed by choices, or feeling insecure about your lack of knowledge.
These Roambler Hosts are full of life. They will help you see the world through new eyes, explore like a local, gain new knowledge about outdoor adventuring, and give you a different point of view and a new perspective.
Although Roambler founder Katie Caputo is based in Williamsport herself along the I-80 Frontier landscape of the PA Wilds, Roambler experiences can be found throughout the entirety of the Commonwealth.
Many of the hosted experiences are focused on outdoor recreation: kayaking along the Susquehanna River, mountain biking in state parks, or even taking a guided overnight backpacking trip in the Pine Creek Valley! However, other Roambler offerings include cultural experiences, such as photography lessons or visiting the bars throughout Williamsport with a local who can show you the hidden treasures and even be your safe driver.
Roambler is also looking for experienced hosts too! If you are someone who knows the region and can help others explore in a meaningful way, you’re encouraged to sign up as a Roambler Host and start sharing your knowledge.
And if you want to explore Pennsylvania in an in-depth, life-changing way, become a Roambler Seeker to start finding your next great adventure.
Whether you are an experience Seeker or a Host, Roambler was designed for you!
Pennsylvania is full of adventure and wonder. If you believe that, it’s because someone shared it through an experience that forever changed you. At Roambler, they believe that everyone should have access to the experiences that “Roamblers” call their own. Try to imagine how different your life would be without these gifts and imagine the impact you could have on a life if you shared them!
If you have yet to experience PA at its fullest, Roambler is here to help. Sign up to begin seeking experiences. When you join Roambler you instantly belong to a community of people who seek to enjoy life and to live life. Collect experiences in your Roambler Passport with custom stamps at every booking or add experiences to your digital bucket list in your profile.
Roambler’s motto is to “live life, share life, and roam!”
Roambler is a Field Guide member in the Experience Makers category of the Wilds Cooperative of Pennsylvania. Learn more about Roambler and leave them a review or recommendation on their WCO profile.
