Howdy Everyone! I am Dillan. I am a Super-Senior at the University of Cincinnati, studying Industrial Management with a Marketing Minor planning to graduate this December. I have had a passion for the outdoors for as long as I can remember; one of my oldest memories is hiking with my grandparents through their woods . My love for the outdoors really took new heights when I started climbing (pun intended), and when I went to college and joined the UC Mountaineering Club.
My passion for the outdoors has driven me all across the country from Florida to Washington. I enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities, including climbing, caving, backpacking, kayaking, and giving a thumbs up in photos. I have learned many things from the outdoors such as how to tame eagles, how to get lost (on purpose this time), how to summon rain clouds, and how to push the cooking abilities of a pocket rocket to the limit (fun fact you can smoke a brisket with one). When not outside I have many hobbies including cutting off my hair, beating Brandon in arm wrestling, playing BJ in chess, and schooling the rest of my co-workers in Euchre.
What trips are you currently day dreaming about?
Adirondack Mountains, Grand Tetons, Horseshoe Ranch, Acadia, Denali, Jefferson National Forest, Bryce Canyon, and many more I can’t think of right now.
