Will Hardison

Co-Founder

Will currently working toward his 14th year of service in the National Guard. His combat experience includes serving as an infantry platoon leader while in Afghanistan. Will and his family discovered the joy of Overlanding a few years ago right after relocating to Portland, Oregon. The activity was fulfilling to him as it triggered feelings similar of the adventure he experienced in his early Army days. His wife, Tabitha, sons Waylan and Leland, and pup Wiley, are into exploring the great outdoors as much as Will. They make the most of their 2007 100 Series Land Cruiser, using it to escape as often as they can, and hunt for just the right spot!
