We're joined today by Andy Hartman, the founder and lead guide of "New Treks" a colorado based outdoor education and guide service for kids and their families in the Denver area. They're particularly focused on helping out families that maybe wouldn't have the resources to recreate outdoors otherwise.
We talk a little bit about how Andy and I met when he was a student on a Jack Mountain Bushcraft Semester, the value of young people getting outdoors early in life, and how important it is for people to have local outdoor experiences, instead of feeling that only remote and "Extreme" locations or experiences have value.
Andy has been a good friend, and occasional guiding colleague of mine for a while now, and it's great to see his expertise and passion getting passed on to young people who might not have the opportunity without his program.
