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?
Yosemite in September! We have Half Dome permits and trail logistics figured out, can’t wait to get out again!
What was the last trip you took?
Winter is my favorite time to get out. This past winter I went backpacking in the Smoky Mountains and Mt. LeConte, always a favorite.
