Todd 'Fantastic' Frei
odd was born and raised near New York City but asks that you do not hold it against him. He lived in Florida and Austin, Texas before falling head over heels in love with Colorado and moving to the highest state in the nation (topographically!) 5 years ago. He earned a BA in Philosophy from Florida State University, which he considers an excellent background for guiding, as the meaning of philosophy (Philos + Sophia) is simply to love knowledge or wisdom. He has explored 49 states so far, many of them by motorcycle, and considers adventuring his favorite form of art. His goal on every tour is to provide you with unforgettable experiences and memories you will cherish for a lifetime, and to help you take enough amazing photos to make your friends and family back home jealous.

Sherry is a Colorado native and so glad she was born here. She has done over the road tours for 12 years, 7 of which were in Alaska/Canada. But Colorado and the West is where she is most comfortable.
