10 Essentials: Questions

How did you get involved with The Mountaineers?

I heard about it all over town, then I went to an open house for new members and signed up. 

What motivates you to get outside with us?

I'm motivated by everyone’s desire to be outside and friendliness . I also appreciate the wisdom and skills shared by the volunteers, and the sense of family I feel within The Mountaineers.

What's your favorite Mountaineers memory?

At the open house meeting, Terri Benz and signing up for the Basic Crew Sailing Course. Sailing was just a dream for me at that time. I’ve been sailing ever since. I’ve meet a whole community of people in Tacoma!

Who/What inspires you?

Three things: 1)The beauty of the outdoors, 2) Good People, 3) Physical Activity. 

What does adventure mean to you?

Going outside your comfort level, even if it’s just a small bit. Trying something new and doing something you’ve never done, no matter how small.

Lightning Round
Sunrise or sunset? Sunrise.
Smile or game face? Smile.
What's your happy place? On the water.
Post-adventure meal of choice? Steak.
If you could be a rock star at any outdoor activity overnight, what would it be? Backcountry snowshoeing. I've never done it, and people love it.
