Meet The Crew

Rick Mendez
Co-Founder, Business Operations

Rick fell in love with this country's forests, parks and public lands after doing what every parent fears their child may do: dropping out of college to go backpack the Yukon. Well, there’s more to it than that, such as it was through the incredible NOLS, but those are the fine details. Since then, be it as a guide or as a lost traveler, Rick has been chasing the next backpacking, road or river trip without looking back.


Jocelyn Farrell Mendez
Co-Founder, Art Designer

Jocelyn grew up exploring and camping in the Adirondack Mountains. It wasn't until leaving home to tend life as a city girl that she truly realized her deep appreciation for nature. Always curious of what more life has to offer, she enjoys the simplicity of hitting the road and seeing where the next adventure takes her.

If our insurance company sees this, we’re screwed.
