Richard R.: I work full time in IT Security. Fortunately, I can work from anywhere so I travel frequently. I get my fix of skiing, hiking, backpacking and camping in the Dillion area of Colorado. When in Florida I’m usually on the water, either paddle-boarding, kayaking and snorkeling. My recent passion is SCUBA diving. I got certified a few years ago and “get wet” as often as I can.
Casey F.: I am an avid outdoorsman with experience in naturalist education, outside adventure education, ski instruction, and writing. In addition to my outdoor hobbies like kayaking, backpacking and camping.
I’m a huge fan of punk rock, launched several start-ups and business ventures. When exploring the backcountry, I usually carry less than 10 pounds of gear. Years of experience have taught me to pack light.
I enjoy sharing my experiences of backcountry education teaching and guiding through writing.

Christina C.: As a passionate traveler, I have been exposed to many cultures and different parts of the world. These experiences have shaped my views and writing style. Travel is definitely my “thing” and if money were no object, you’d never be able to catch up with me.
Writing is my creative outlet. I get lost in the process of sharing amusing anecdotes and observations about everyday life with readers. I enjoy explaining things in a way the average layperson can understand, especially in the field of mental health.
