Dave Mention

Dave’s love affair with the outdoors began when he discovered the Three Sisters Wilderness in his native Oregon at the age of 12. In the ensuing 33 years, his adventurous spirit has spread from hiking to climbing, cross country skiing, cycling and sea kayaking. He has led treks in Sikkim and New Zealand, as well as climbing expeditions in Alaska, the Yukon, and the Karakoram. Three years ago, Dave and his family took a four month journey around the world, sampling adventures on four continents.

A Registered Maine Guide, Dave was a founding member of the Maine Association of Sea Kayaking Guides and Instructors and has been an advocate for both paddlers and the environment through his work as a board member of the Maine Island Trail Association. After working for 15 years with L.L. Bean helping to develop outdoor gear and outdoor adventures, Dave and his family moved to Italy in 2000, where he has been exploring the Alps from Slovenia to France and pondering the kayaking possibilities from the Italian lakes to Sardinia and Sicily. Holding a philosophy degree, Dave loves to share his passion for exploring the outdoors, whether leading cross-country skiing treks through the Maine wilderness or mountain biking in the Japanese Alps.
