Growing up in Utah and being active in the Scouting Program, I had the opportunity to spend a lot of time camping and hiking. I was instilled with a love of the outdoors since my youth. For me the trail is a haven from this crazy world we live in and a refuge from the storm. I enjoy writing about my experiences on my blog and taking people to new and exciting adventures. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the incredible and amazing wonders the outdoors can provide.
I try to get out on a trail every week. I love the slot canyons of the Grand Staircase to the peaks of the Wasatch Mountains, and all point in between. Every person should be able to witness the brilliance of the Milky Way in a remote dark place. My wilderness experiences have changed and defined my life. I am truly grateful for my outdoor adventures. It is my hope that every person can have the opportunity, if they want it, to commune with nature. Gear Forward's mission is to provide the tools each kid needs to be able to have these experiences for themselves. Some things need to be experienced.
It's the journey, not the destination.
