Hey Squad

Hey guys I just read through all your posts and can’t wait to meet all you !

My name’s Joey and I’ve spend most of my life living in the outskirts of Chicago. I don’t quite love the city, but going downtown’s one of my favorite things to do. I am 19 and after I graduated high school I moved to Vail, Colorado to ski, snowboard and work as a lift operator for the mountain. I also was an ice cream scooper at haagen dasz, part time (side hustle).  I found how at peace I was when surrounded by nature in Vail, and I want to continue to explore the world and be outside. I really love to vanish into the back country where ever I can, yeah, it gets tough when you live in the midwest but I make getting lost a top priority.:)  This is what draws me towards Dragons and Nepal especially. I want to grow spiritually there and study the distant culture of the people.

I moved back after the winter to work around Chicago and pick up a class in the meantime while I wait for this wild exciting experience. All you seem super cool can’t wait to meet you!
