Dan Nash founded Hiking the Ozarks in 2007 and grew up exploring the Ozark Mountains; its thousands of miles of beautiful and rugged terrain was the playground his father introduced to him and his brothers. He has led expeditions, backpacked, hiked and rock climbed in 14 countries.
As President of Hiking the Ozarks, Dan coordinates and leads the company's various education and guiding programs. He has tested and reviewed gear for dozens of companies and provided hundreds of written and video gear reviews for major publications. Unlike too many other gear testers, Dan tests gear out in the field ... during backpacking trips and / or on mountains around the world.
Dan is also the Founder & President of Satori Adventures & Expeditions, an international guiding and mountaineering company with affiliates in Nepal and South America, which provides dozens of hiking, backpacking and mountaineering expeditions in over 20 countries. Satori, based right here in Southwest Missouri, is the only company that operates on all 8,000 meter peak mountains around the world.
