What I Can Share with Hosts

MUCH STOKE, GOOD BEER, AND GREAT STORIES! IVE BEEN LIVING ON THE ROAD FOR ABOUT 5 YEARS HIKING, FARMING, AND PURSUING ADVENTURES IN THE HIGH MOUNTAINS OF NORTH AMERICA. DURING THIS TIME I'VE HAD A LOT OF EXPERIENCE STEPPING INTO DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES AND WORKING ON PROJECTS THAT RANGE FROM BUILDING BARNS AND RENOVATING OLD HOUSES TO ESTABLISHING AND MAINTAINING URBAN GARDENS AND SERVING AS A RESIDENT CHEF AT A SCHOOL FOR YOUNG FARMERS. I'M ALSO AN ASPIRING MOUNTAIN GUIDE WITH SEVERAL YEARS EXPERIENCE TEACHING BEGINNERS HOW TO ROCK CLIMB AND PLANNING TRIPS, EVERYTHING FROM MELLOW HIKES AND INTRO CLIMBING TO MORE SERIOUS ALPINE EXCURSIONS AND BIG WALLS.
