About me

Fast Facts:
- Eddie Bauer Exploration Guide + Annual Partner for REI, CamelBak, Brooks Running and Schwinn
- First person to visit all 419 National Park Service sites in a single journey
- Founder of LGBTQ+ inclusive Outside Safe Space program:

Road Trip and National Parks expert Mikah Meyer has been named a “Social Media Warrior” by MTV and featured by NPR, The Guardian, The Today Show, and more for his speaking, advocacy, and adventures as a pioneer of LGBTQ+ representation. His 3-year, world record national parks road trip saw him make history as the First Openly Gay Man Featured in an Outdoors Recreation Campaign (with REI). His work was recognized by NBC as a Stonewall #Pride50 "innovator and change-maker" alongside the likes of James Baldwin and Marsha P. Johnson. With an adventure ethos inspired by the loss of his road-trip-loving father to cancer, Mikah uses travel to help audiences live today before tomorrow is too late.
