Hi, my name is Bryan. My passion for the outdoors spawned from cross country road trips. The open roads, national parks, endless landscapes, and forged friendships sent me into an obsession with nature and adventure travel. I was 18 for that first trip, but I understood then and now that it is always about the journey, not the destination.
My first backpacking trip then lasted 170 days on the Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia. Since then I’ve enjoyed; 40 miles of barefoot backpacking in northern Vermont, remote trekking in the wilderness of Alaska, countless revisits of the AT including 4 Katahdin summits (and counting), winter summit of Mt. Washington, coastal trails in Kauai, a voyage to the Canadian Rockies, the Laugavegur in Iceland, and all the local trails that I can find time for.
My passion landed me here. You can find me organizing our community volunteer events, leading trail runs, or hopefully helping YOU with your next adventure!
What trips are you currently day dreaming about?
Torres Del Paine in Patagonia is at the top!
Is there a trip that you are planning to do next?
The annual winter trip! I’ll find the coldest weekend and head to the mountains!
What was the last trip you took?
This past October I was lucky enough to get away to Yosemite. A 5 day trek in the park led us to a Half Dome Summit along with Vogelsang. The nearly empty park was surreal!
