Grant Sible has been an avid outdoorsman since growing up in Iowa and Minnesota. He has lived and trekked all over the world before settling in Austin, Texas. Though growing up ‘in town’, he spent all his spare time in the woods, and his passion for outdoor places continues to this day. He has lived in Mammoth, San Francisco, Quito, North Carolina, and Florida, but has called Austin home since 1992.
Grant has hiked in Patagonia, the Alps, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, the upper Amazon cloud forest and the Amazon basin forest. He thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2002, and has hiked extensively in the White Mountains and the western Sierra. In between his terra firma adventures, Grant has been scuba diving in New Guinea, Indonesia, Galapagos (3 times).
He has summitted diverse Ecuadorian peaks, including Cotopaxi at 19,400 feet. He has canoed the Boundary Waters in Minnesota, and on the Amazon River and tributaries. He has fished for piranha (which he said were quite tasty) and wrestled crocodiles (he let them go afterwards).
