Jeremy Markel

I'm an avid outdoorsman and like the experience of exploring new trails or getting to the top of any peaks I can. I have a wide range of outdoor interests and enjoy the challenge of finding the lesser known paths. I usually run events that tend to be longer and more difficult throughout the year in all weather and all conditions. You can read about my experiences on my Camping Canucks blog.
