A few things you might not know about Aaron…

What is your favorite quote?

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge.”

What is the most ridiculous fact you know?

“It’s illegal to go whaling in Lake Erie. I’m not entirely sure how this came to be but I read back in the early 1800’s there were sightings of whales seen in the lake. Coincidentally, when prohibition kicked in, sightings decreased, which lead scientist and early conservationist to believe the whales were becoming endangered hence the law to ban whaling in Lake Erie.”

What is your absolute dream job?

“Gear tester for REI or Backpacker Magazine. Getting paid to hike, backpack and canoe with fully supplied gear sounds pretty amazing.”

Coffee or tea?


Cat person or dog person?
