Jared L. Bio



Nickname: JJ

Weapon of Choice: The baculum of a mighty walrus! Google it if you must.

Super Power: The power to turn water into water with a yellow tint.

Favorite Breakfast Cereal: Count Chocula makes a comeback!

What's at the top of your 'bucket list'?: I'd like to hike both, the Wonderland Trail and the John Muir Trail in one summer.

Favorite thing about Next Adventure?: No one here wears a tie and everyone says good morning like they mean it.

Tell us a little more about yourself!

I have a great interest in hiking, backpacking and other outdoor adventures. If I'm not eating tacos, you'll probably find me at my desk where I design and craft my own ultralight backpacking gear, including stoves and hammocks, tarps and quilts.
