Who is behind Overland Quest

Adventure, navigation, planning, and organization are etched into my way of thinking.

Thirty years serving my county performing maritime search and rescue operations granted me an action oriented thirst for adventure.

Navigation on the water depends on organization and calloused discipline. The success of each mission depended on it. I bring the same tracked determination to Overland Quest …

Exploring, gaining experience, process evaluation, proving methods
… getting out there.
