Hi, my name is Barrett Ihde. I am 17, live in Oregon, and I am graduating high school a semester early to adventure in the Andes and Amazon with you guys. I play soccer, basketball, and run track. I live in a very active part of Oregon and love being outdoors. Next year I am going to college, not sure where yet. I am very excited to go on this trip and learn a bunch of new things and have new experiences with you guys. Can’t wait!
