Hi all, my name is Brent Gangwish and I am from Boulder CO.

Like most others in this crew I recently graduated high school this past spring and felt burnt out with the routine of school. Along with going to Nepal, I am climbing Aconcagua (22,841) in Argentina this December and getting certified as a WEMT with NOLS this spring. I plan to go to CU in Boulder in the fall of 2018.

About me: I am extremely excited about Nepal and the trekking portion of this trip as I am an Eagle Scout, WFR and have spent most every summer backpacking in one form or another, I love climbing in all shapes and any adventure I can find from skydiving to scuba diving .

I cant wait for this trip and to meet everyone!

(P.S. I have been tasked with being the student travel leader for the group and will be taking a big group picture and collecting passports and for some amount of the travel portion I will be our main contact with the Dragons staff.)
