Jack of All Trades--only his name is Rob

We welcome Rob Seckinger as our new MVSTA Trails Manager. Here's a little bit more about Rob:
Rob has spent most of his adult life working in the outdoors. He has worked as a Whitewater River Guide and Instructor, an Outward Bound Instructor, a professional Ski Patroller and he worked for the Forest Service. Interspersed between his many outdoor education/guiding jobs he has worked in the building trade.
8 years ago, Rob and his family moved to the Methow from Lummi Island where they had been operating a Sea Kayak touring company. In the Methow, Rob has worked primarily as a Carpenter and General Contractor in the summer and groomed the ski trails for MVSTA in the early morning hours of winter.
Rob shared this about his most epic adventure, "In 2009 my wife, Ina, and my two kids, Maya and Wiley, rode tandem bikes across the country on a self-supported journey. This ride was an incredible experience for all of us and showed us how lucky we were to live in such a beautiful place with such an incredible trail system. Of the 3331 miles, we rode we experienced over a thousand miles of trails and bike paths connecting communities across our nation. The fact that I now get to work full time for such a trail system is exciting. When I 'm not out working on the trails, I will be dreaming of the next big adventure or hanging out with my kids at school, sports, or just having fun."
