Hello, my name is Andrew Blackburn and I live outside of Boston. I am currently taking a gap year before I go to Vassar College. Last semester I did an 80 day NOLS course in the Pacific Northwest which gave me a lot of experience in the outdoors. I have always loved being outside whether I am running, hiking, skiing, rock climbing, and most other things. I wanted to get a backcountry trip which is why I chose this course. I love roughing it in the middle of nowhere, getting lost off trail, enjoying the random unexpected moments.
I’m really pumped to be in a small group again soon and just enjoy having the opportunity to travel like this. Can’t wait to meet you all!
