Adventure is in my heart and soul. I realized this in 1990 while on a camping photo safari in Tanzania and Kenya. I learned that having a great personal adventure begins when you step outside of your comfort zone.!
​I learned what this looked like as I journeyed on 17+ mission trips, and through leading numerous impact-adventure trips through a company I founded called Global Trek. The places we traveled were: Himalayas of Nepal to the Andes and Amazon of Peru. We built orphanages in the ghettos of Nairobi, Kenya after summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro. We provided compassion & aid to the people of Kao Lak, Thailand after the Tsunami of 2004 and motorcycled through the Himalayas to share the gospel. We shared the gospel with local Amazonian tribes and went on canoeing adventures. A life sold out for a bigger purpose is a life of ADVENTURE BEYOND MEASURE!!

The vision for Montana Wild began in the 80's when I wanted to have a cabin in the wilderness where I could have a base camp to share epic adventures that impact your life so you can pay it forward  and impact others. 

The first official Montana Wild adventure took place September 24 - 28, 2014. This was a 4-day adventure where we experienced the best of Montana including mountain biking in Whitefish and having a beer and pizza, hiking 10+hours, Flathead Lake BBQ's, fly fishing in the most pristine remote Lakes for rare Bull trout, and unlimited adventure in Glacier National Park. If you join us, be prepared to hike in remote wilderness where grizzlies abound and sometimes you need a 45 at your side.  Our accomodations are always 100% pure Montana and affordable at the same time.  We've had 7 adventurous Montana Wild trips and 2021 is going to be one of the most Epic!! The vision of having a basecamp for Montana Wild became reality in 2019 with the purchase of a gorgeous piece of land in Lakeside MT. We have Big Plans for 2021 and we invite you to join us not only in living the adventure but sharing the adventure with your son, best friend or an inner city boy that has never seen such beauty.
