This year’s two Get Out More Tour ambassadors are Keith and Becky Unruh. For the tour, the couple will travel through 48 states and speak at 60 outdoor retailers as well as visit five outdoor summer festivals and even more trails. This may sound like a busy schedule even to the most enthusiastic outdoors people, but Keith and Becky have thrived in their own busy adventures!

Keith and Becky describe themselves as seasonal nomads, and they live up to the name: the couple has lived in three different ski resorts, five National Parks, and the Florida Keys, and they have also traveled to more than thirty countries spread over four continents. While exploring the many natural and cultural wonders they found during their international travels, they hiked to the Base Camp of Mount Everest in the Himalayan mountain ranges. While in Laos, they joined a crew in constructing a school for underprivileged children in the region. In terms of their longer excursions, they thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. They have also bicycled the TransAmerica Bicycle Trail from Virginia to Oregon.
Becky & Keith Unruh's personal blog describes their Get Out More Tour adventures along with archived articles from their previous travels.
In short, Keith and Becky are outstanding Get Out More Tour ambassadors and presenters! There are few people who are more qualified to instruct people in hiking techniques.
