Reduces extensive time to plan outdoor adventures, Merges mobile technology with outdoor activities, connecting to like-minded people
MP Trekz is a San Diego-based technology company with passion for innovation and creativity. MP Journey has developed a mobile application to assist campers in the United States. Smartphones are becoming the most widely available communication platforms. We wanted to create an application which lets users plan their camping journey while using as little time as possible. With our app, campers will be able to connect with other campers, get informed, connect with vendors to make purchases. While on their adventure, campers can use the for emergency notification, mapping and integration purposes.
Every year, people in all areas of the world answer a calling to the beautiful and revitalizing outdoor environment, whether the activity is hiking, car camping, back packing, hunting, off-highway vehicle driving, dirt biking, cross-country skiing, mountain biking, or running. In the parts of the world that have achieved modernization and ushered in the information age, high stress task loads, work burn-out, and poor mental health are pervasive in the working population. The opportunity to touch nature for rejuvenation has, in many cases, been artificially brought into people’s homes in the form of reality television. The average person is left to live vicariously through a TV personalities’ experience because they themselves do not have the time available, due to work demands, to take time for experiencing the event personally.
