He will aim to eliminate misconceptions and identify challenges for people, whether they are passionate hikers, backpackers and adventurers or individuals looking to explore the outdoors for the first time.

“I have a genuine passion for the outdoors that started way back as a child,” Propster said. “There were times that I would spend a night in a tent before I even realized that it was camping. Sharing your passion with thousands of consumers across the country is truly a humbling experience, knowing you’re providing information and inspiration that can actually change someone’s life.”
