Hello, my name is David.

I am a Leavenworth, Washington-based adventurer. Along with my wife, Hannah, and daughter, Abigail, we love to bike, tour, hike, camp, climb, SUP and generally live as much life as possible out of doors. The acquisition (and subsequent modification) of a Sprinter van in late 2018 has upped our game considerably.

My wife and I both work full-time, but we find time in the afternoons / evenings / weekends to escape to the outdoors, even on micro-adventures from our house for a mountain bike lap, SUP session, or into town for brew or a bite.

I’m a project-oriented individual and love organization. The end of every adventure means reviewing my packing list and gear assortment for optimization or a “better way to plan, pack and pull off” the next trip. Thankfully, Hannah enjoys these same things (to some degree) so the eye-rolling is minimal. Though I certainly realize I can go overboard!

The Garage

To that end, I’ve launched the NWXPDTN “Garage.” Having a shop and project workspace at our house, I feel I can finally put my planning, design, automotive, carpentry, and electrical skills to work for you–a way to provide a service to people in the overland and adventure community. I am just as jazzed about getting your vehicle ready or modified for your next adventure as you are. See you out there!

Camera Bag

Photography is the adhesive that combines my hobbies and interests. Here’s what I’m shooting with these days:

Fujifilm X-T3 | Fujifilm X100V | Fujinon 16mm f/1.4 | Fujinon 35mm f/1.4 | B+W filters | iPhone Pro | Darkroom app
