OG, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, is an experienced outdoor junkie, a true adventurer by nature with a genuine passion for hiking, fly-fishing, mountaineering, vehicle dependent expeditions, backpacking and the list goes on. Essentially, if it involves being under a roof or surrounded by four walls, Sam isn’t interested. He believes people should welcome life’s challenges and take pride in personal triumphs. Adventure may have a different meaning for each person, but one truth remains — you need the right tools to get you home safe. And from that basic philosophy, OutdoorGearhead was born.
