Due to our current global situation with COVID-19 we’ve had to make the difficult, but right decision to cancel #LHX2020 for the safety and health of our team members and community.
At HBF Outdoors LLC we not only advocate getting outdoors, but we support and respect our public lands and the PADCNR.
While #LHX2020 is canceled we are already beginning to look into 2021 and beyond. We have new ideas and new adventures simmering on the back burner.
Moving forward we have made the decision to have all future #LHX Projects be in support of our veterans and first responders who battle PTSD. We will continue to partner with and be an advocate for REBOOT Recovery and we look forward to working with them on future #LHX Projects.
I want to thank everyone who has donated to #Mission22 and Reboot Recovery through #LHX2020. Thank you to everyone behind the scenes who help to make these projects possible. You’re support and efforts are greatly appreciated and I look forward to working with you on future #LHX Projects.
Thank you to all our sponsors for your support and for spreading the word about our cause.
And I especially want to thank my teammates who sacrifice and give to be a part of #LHX. Thank you for your support in this decision.
Mankind is resilient and we’ll get through this in time. Stay safe, stay healthy, and get outdoors, but PLEASE comply with the restrictions and guidelines put into place for the health and safety of everyone.
Have an awesome day!

Where: The Laurel Highlands & Ohiopyle
What: A five-day backpacking trip beginning on the north end of the LHHT (Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail) and ending at Ohiopyle, the south end.
We are bringing a diverse team from all over the U.S. from the outdoor community to connect in person on the trail to share our experiences, skills, and ideas to lead others towards making a difference, hike for veterans and first responders and experience the outdoors as a team.
We have partnered with #Mission22 to bring awareness and raise support for veterans with PTSD. Mission 22 is a non-profit that combats the ever-rising veteran suicide rate. Every day, more than twenty veterans are lost to suicide. Mission 22 wants to bring that number to zero. It does this with three main programs; veteran treatment programs, memorials, and national awareness. Mission 22 provides treatment programs to veterans for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they might be facing. It organizes events and builds memorials to create social impact and awareness for these issues.
