Growing up in Colorado skiing on both water and snow was an amazing experience. I have ridden Snow mobiles the deepest snow and up the highest peaks, ridden dirt bikes and Mountain Bikes all over Colorado, Moab, Utah and the Slickrock area. Winter Park Resort is where he learned to ski and volunteer for the National Sports Center for the Disabled for 10 years. He taught developmentally disabled kids from Children’s Hospital every Saturday. With a long term relationship ending, he decided to unplug. Now he is selling pretty much everything he owns including his house before embarking upon this trip of a lifetime. He’ll figure things out when he returns in 8 months.
Traveling by motorcycle allows Greg to combine his love of adventure, travel, photography and nature. After receiving his engineering degree, Greg moved to Austin, Texas to raise his family.
