We are a couple who came to nature in different ways.
Casey: I grew up traveling in an RV and the national parks were among my first loves. At the age of 14, I had my first real back country experience on Outward Bound in North Carolina. Throughout high school we spent many weekends in a tent in the parks in Indiana and I continued to introduce friends to the outdoors during college and my early 20s.
As I worked on establishing the my adult life (house, career, spouse, etc.) I lost touch with my love of the outdoors for a bit. In 2009, my new fiancé and I finally took a grand camping trip to Yellowstone. That adventure was a little too intense for Ted, but he eventually came around. Now camping and hiking are among our greatest passions!
