    Howdy!

    I'm Beau and I've had a thirst for adventure since before I could walk. This has taken me all across the world and I have been so fortunate to see some of the wildest places on Earth. I was a safari guide in Southern Africa back in 2011-12 where I cultivated my wilderness skills and appreciation for wildlife. I have camped and hiked in the Caucus mountains of Russia in one of the oldest forests in the world. I lived in Mexico and traveled the countryside and climbed the magnificent Aztec piramids of Oaxaca. In 2017 I completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian trail, totalling 2191 miles along the eastern range of the U.S.

    Currently I am enrolled at Montana State University for Wildlife Habitat Ecology + Management with hopes to hike the Continental Divide Trail upon my graduation. During college, I have worked at a major outdoor retailer for over two years giving me the opportunity to learn about the expansive selection of gear out there, and I can't wait to assist you on your next trip!

    Beau knows his stuff!!!
    BEAU = Beyond Expectations And Understanding of all my nuanced questions regarding gear I’ll need as a backpacking novice. I came to this site to browse and was pleasantly surprised to find an expert able to hand pick various items that were essential for my needs. Beau actually listened to what I was looking for and provided various suggestions and options for my needs, very tailored advice and was extremely responsive. He definitely pointed me in the right direction and was able to break down everything down for beginner like me. Beau is awesome!

    A moose attacked my expert
    Beau was literally attacked by a moose in the middle of making me a curation. Not kidding. He played through a minor injury and quickly found me the perfect setup. MJ flu game stuff. I'll be back for more from Beau soon.
