Camping & Hiking Expert Beau Garcia
  • Beau Garcia


    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!
