Hi, my name is John! In 2012, I decided to join the upventur team and help make our vision come true. I had grown up fishing and hiking as a youth, and as time went on, I realized that those were some of the best times of my life. I also realized that so many people have trouble getting outside and getting moving. So, upventur is a way to encourage not only my family but everyone to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible and to explore (and do) new things.
