A few weeks ago Trailspace’s 10,000th review, a review of Garmont’s Passo hiking boots, was posted by Johnno. Since we couldn’t make balloons fall and the band play when the 10,000th review was posted, I wanted to recognize Johnno, or rather John Stewart, in an effort to acknowledge the contributions of all of Trailspace’s reviewers.
Originally from Waiheke Island, New Zealand, Johnno lives in Melbourne, Australia, and is working toward his geoscience Ph.D., specializing in structural geology and geophysics, from Monash University. Johnno’s work involves a lot of outdoor activity in remote and rugged desert and mountainous terrain. He says the day he posted his review “I just happened to see my old boots on the office floor and decided that I’d do some mucking around on the Internet to see if anyone else had something to say about them.” The rest is history.
The big news in John’s life (besides posting Trailspace’s 10,000th review) is that he and his fiancée, Helen, are getting married in April. Congratulations, John and Helen! Trailspace hats are now on their way to you in Australia.
