My name is Thayne. I recently moved back to SLC after spending the past 16 years bouncing between Boston and San Francisco. After about 10 years without owning a 4 wheeled vehicle (have had some stripe of motorcycle since my teens...currently a '07 KLR) I decided I wanted to get back to exploring further off the beaten path with all the creature comforts. 2018 started off with me purchasing a 2001 LX470 which I "fly-n-drived" from Tahoe to Boston, taking the long way home where in Death Valley I aired down my tires for the first time ever haha.
I'm excited to explore more of the west, and hoping some of ya'll will let me follow you down some dirt tracks! Growing up in SLC meant more than a few trips down to Moab to go wheelin' in buddies CJ's, and local mild trails in my first vehicle, a stock XJ...but that's pretty much sums up the extent of my experience. Been reading Expo for years now, really valuing that repository of info.
My past years have been spent working in the bicycle industry, and I like bikepacking and backpacking, getting back into climbing, and putting holes in paper.
