I have been a club member since 2021.  I grew up in the Ozarks of southwest Missouri where my family had a small cattle ranch.  Later, with our extended family, we built a 500-acre resort out in the country on Lake Taneycomo.

I come from a very large extended family and we participated in all kinds of outdoor activities. We often went riding ATVs, fishing, and camping with our many cousins. I hadn’t done much of that in my adulthood and decided it was time to get out on the trails again.

I enjoy getting outside and taking in the beauty of the Utah landscape. I have worked in technology for 25 years and as such spend much of my time indoors so getting out and riding is a great mental health break.
