Hi there! I’m Ben and my trail name is Flapjack Daniels. It stems from my love of making pancakes while on the trail and from my other love/problem with a certain Tennessee sour mash.
I’m a recent graduate from the University of Cincinnati and currently work at an engineering firm here in Cincinnati while still working part time at RRT. In my spare time I help lead and organize trips through the UC Mountaineering Club.
I travel A LOT and I love to talk to people about trips and planning their next adventure. So, if you’re ever in the shop and have a question, feel free to strike up a conversation.
What trips are you currently day dreaming about?
Climbing winter 14ers in Colorado, then hiking the Na Pali Coast
Is there a trip that you are planning to do next?
In January I plan to head out to Colorado for a week of winter mountaineering
What was the last trip you took?
I went along with my co-workers to Lake Clark National Park and Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska for two weeks of packrafting and sea kayaking
