A Backpacker’s Guide To The Wilderness
Wednesday, March 25 | 4:30pm
Tom Cross Backcountry Hiker
After a 35-year career in information technology and management consulting with Price Waterhouse, PWC and IBM, Tom and his wife Kitty Cross came to Boca Grande in 2005. Without realizing it at the time, a random email a year earlier from one of his business partners lit the fuse on Tom’s “retirement job” – planning and leading backcountry hiking adventures. Since his first trek in the Alaska wilderness in 2004, Tom has organized and guided 14 backpacking treks on some of the most scenic trails in Denali, Glacier, Grand Canyon, Grand Teton and Yosemite National Park, the Adirondacks and Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness areas. He has also planned and led treks through some of the most majestic landscapes on the planet in Patagonia, New Zealand, Peru, Iceland, Nepal, Tanzania, Italy and Switzerland for an ever-expanding fraternity of trekking brothers. Tom will give the audience an in-depth photo tour of his travels and experiences through strange, yet beautiful, backcountry terrain.
