John and Becky are the owners of Pack & Paddle. John’s job includes creating, writing about and scheduling the events and trips that P&P does. In addition, John does much of the gear and boat selection for the shop. Becky works with Kyla, our bookkeeper to keep the office humming. In addition, Becky works with Amy Liuzza to choose most of the clothing and footwear we sell in the shop.
Here’s an intro from John’s blog so that you can get to know them better:
Becky and I really enjoy hiking, canoeing and spending time outdoors. We have one son (31 years old and married!)who is a physics professor at Murray State University. We love long distance trips both hiking and bicycling and have completed the Appalachian Trail, Colorado Trail, John Muir trail and many others on foot. On bike we have completed the Natchez Trace as well as the west coast of Oregon and California from Astoria OR to San Diego, CA.
Here’s a video John made for Becky with photos from some of their thru hikes:
