I started learning about the outdoors and activities from scouting and my family..I also was a member of a well know High School Cross Country team that competed nationally..From these endeavors I went on to join the Military which brought me to learning new things and travel. While at college I continued to reach for the outdoors while finishing school and finding more activities to get involved in.It's been a wonderful investment in time and learning new skills. I am currently a member of the RATC it's a maintainer club for the Appalachian trail.I am also a member of the ALDHA for long distance hikers..
