The outdoors is a refuge for me, and is a place that plays an integral part in my life. The Boy Scouts of America cultivated my love and need for this place at a young age. I beleive in the wilderness as more than a destination, rather a medium in which humans can connect with the natural world. I make constant attempts to juggle my obligations with Travelcountry and school in hopes of maximizing my time outside. I hope to one day produce and market my own line of outdoor gear. My favorite activity to take part in is long distance Backpacking.
