I have always lived in cities (currently San Francisco) and so my dose of adventure ranges from urban local adventures to those in far off places. Besides the Explorer Grand Slam and mountaineering, I am an avid traveler, skier, hiker, and just generally love being outside.  I have traveled to 32 countries, hiked the Rim2Rim2Rim of the Grand Canyon in 19 hours, swam where piranhas and anacondas dwell in the Amazon, and explored 6 of our 7 continents, CANNOT wait for Antarctica-saved the best for last :)
