Howdy, it's John here. While I'm originally from Washington, the map makers say I'm still technically in the Northwest since my move to Reno, Nevada. I've been following Dan Cronin's exploits for several years and got to join his Trans-Nevada Trek this month. I'm the publisher and frequent contributor to TRAILS Magazine, one of my favorite new titles. With roots still in the PNW, I'm game for another trip with this great group of people.
