We are excited to kick off 2018 by adding Christina Scheuermann of Camper Christina to our Brand Ambassador Team!
Christina has always been interested and happiest in the outdoors. As a kid, she woke up weekends at the crack of dawn to go outside and play by the creek, roller-skate, ride her bike, and spend every minute she could enjoying nature. She always loved nature, but somehow life, school, work and doing all those grownup things got in the way, and the outdoors seemed more and more difficult for her to get to, as time passed. She got out, but not enough.
Christina started backcountry camping over fifteen years ago. Without people in her life who shared the same interests though, trips were few and far between, and it seemed to her like she would never be able to do what she loved most, more than once in a while. It was not enough for her.
One day a few years ago, after not being chosen to win a dream job contest where she'd be paid to explore the great outdoors of Canada for five months straight, Christina had an epiphany: She did not need to win a contest to enjoy what she loved. She only needed the passion she already had, and, to actually just commit to doing what she wanted to do, with or without anyone else. That day, she created Camper Christina.
As Christina also loves to write and speak her mind, she soon started a blog where she would share all of her adventures with anyone who she could hope to inspire. Soon after, she began a youtube channel where she enjoys making videos about the outdoors and trying to inspire others to get outside. In that time since starting her blog, Christina has continuously camped, hiked, biked, climbed, skated, snowshoed, kayaked, canoed, portaged and spent more time in the outdoors than even she thought possible. She's achieved her Wilderness First Aid, level 1 and 2 Sea Kayaking Certificates, Basic Kayak Instructor, taken Map and Compass level 1 and 2, and has been on countless trips both solo and with friends, both new and old. As she hates the cold, she built her own hot tent tipi and recently a smaller hot tent for the backcountry, so she's also able to camp during the winter months and remain comfortable. She has pushed herself to do things beyond her comfort level and has spent countless hours editing photos and documenting her adventures, all in the hopes of inspiring others, and herself, to go out and live your dreams, no matter what they are!
I began using PURINIZE® steadily this year after realizing I didn’t have a backup in place in case my water filter ran into issues. Then, when I headed out on several solo multi-day portaging trips where weight and the size of my pack was a concern, I solely used the PURINIZE® drops. I am a Pisces and love water and drink it even when there are many other options. I love PURINIZE® because it is convenient, light and easy to pack, but mostly because it doesn’t make my water taste like anything but water. It is imperative to have clean drinking water at my disposal when I’m out adventuring and carrying a small bottle of PURINIZE® with me whether I am on a multi-day trip or out hiking for a few hours, gives me comfort and never leaves me thirsty. I am grateful to PURINIZE® for having such an amazing product and am proud to promote it.
