Shannon has been an avid outdoorsman his entire life. He used to work with a company that built National Park Museums all over the country, and while he was doing the work, he wasn’t able to really see the sights. He was often given intel on off-the-grid sights by the local park rangers he worked with to complete the projects. That intel is key information for some of these trips. He’s exceptional at finding interesting things to see and do, and has outstanding outdoor skills. He can build anything, and is responsible for keeping us well equipped and well prepared. Here’s a list of the museums he helped build:
