When I'm not spending all of my work time and free time working on cool new products for EveryTrail, I like to enjoy the outdoors as much as I can. Thankfully there is so much around me that I often don't need to go too far. I have traveled to Europe several times and each time keeps me begging for more, especially after living in Berlin for 3 months while studying--I can't wait to go back!
This past year I went to Tahoe a few times to ski, visited my friend in Peru where I finally hiked around Machu Picchu (one of my dreams), and then spent a week in Yosemite with my entire family hiking as much as I could each day--it was great!
Now I'm living in San Francisco and trying to find rides out to the mountains for weekend backpacking trips with friends. They tend to be very last minute which has caused some minor problems in the past year, such as forgetting to bring a camp stove and not knowing where the campground was while trying to find it in complete darkness (we passed it by 3 miles). So far nothing too serious has happened and it always makes for good stories.
I've been keeping track of my travels on my travel blog, http://www.gone-wandering.com.
