As an educator, adventurer, writer, and occasional craftsman Rick isn’t afraid to have a few irons in the fire. His trusty Tacoma serves as a rolling gear locker and basecamp as he seeks out new caves to explore, the next epic fishing spot, or just a secluded campsite for the night. For the last decade he’s been involved in outdoor media, and enjoys producing quality content that educates and inspires readers to get out and pursue their passions. He holds the Appalachian mountains and the Southeast near and dear to his heart. Whether it’s a trip to the West Virginia highlands or a slow day on the Atlantic coast, Rick always appreciates the diversity of climates and unique character the South has to offer. Of course, he’s always down for a trip to the desert or any other place where there’s adventure to be found.
