Hello Pacific Northwest Adventure 1! This is Marissa and Brett here on our first official blog of the trip! We are so excited to meet all of you and for our upcoming trip. A little about us:
Marissa- Hey Hey! I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and currently am traveling around the world leading outdoor adventure and education trips for youth! I enjoy any outdoor activity including running, backpacking, and camping. I also love reading, playing the guitar, and peanut butter cups. This trip is going to be so much fun! I’m very excited to meet everyone and for all the adventures ahead!
Brett- Hey! Hey! Hey! It’s Brett! I’m graduating from the University of Georgia in the fall with plans to go to graduate school to become a therapist. Outside of the classroom, I am a huge sports fan (go dawgs and Chicago teams) and I try and spend as much time as possible outdoors. I am an avid runner and I love spending my weekends camping in the mountains, backpacking, or whitewater rafting. I’m so excited to experience the magic that comes with a bold earth trip! Looking forward to meeting you 🙂
Parent drop off and student meet up: There will be photos attached to the blog that will include where we will be meeting all the students arriving on flights and the parents dropping off. We will be stationed in the middle of baggage claim 9 and 10, tucked in the back near the bathrooms. Students arriving on the plane, please follow the signs down to baggage claim and come find Brett and Marissa at that location. For students who are getting dropped off by parents, it’s easiest to park and take the sky bridge over to baggage claim. Students who are flying as unaccompanied minors will be met by Marissa at their gate. Remember to wear your Bold Earth T-shirt!
Please feel free to reach out to either of us if you have any pre-trip questions. We can’t wait for the many adventures and fun days ahead all throughout the PNW!
Marissa and Brett
