Travis

My name is Travis. I will be through hiking the PCT in 2017. I worked on cars for the last 13 years as a BMW master technician and shop foreman. Aside from loving to hike, I also love to build and off road Jeeps, and everything that comes with that, such as fabrication and welding. I have recently decided that I did not like my job and situation. My wife and I sold almost everything that we owned to downsize our life pay off most of our debt and are beginning a new chapter in our life starting with an epic adventure across the western United States to the PCT.
