The reason he has a hiking image as his logo is because hiking is his lifetime passion. Jim spent his childhood hiking in the North Cascades and at age 17 participated in Northwest Outward Bound.
Starting just outside of Darrington, Washington, he hiked across the Cascade mountains to a re-supply point in a small village named Holden and then back to Darrington via Miners Ridge. This got Jim hooked on hiking prompting him to work for the US Forest Service for five summers
during College further developing his love
of the woods and nature.
Jim's other passion, that of classic cars, started with his very first automobile... a 1968 Oldsmobile 442.
