Sam Werbel       Owner, Head Adventurer

I'm a born and raised Vermonter who would love to share my passion for outdoor activity and delicious food and drink with you. Seems to me we're in just the right state!

 I'm an outdoor nut and a locavore gourmand. I have a green thumb and I love to wrap my fingers around a kayak paddle. I'm an ultra-marathon runner and a beer enthusiast. I put maple syrup in my coffee, and top apple pie with cheddar cheese. I love what this state has to offer, and I hope to be able to share it with you.

Starting as a youngster I learned that the outdoor life speaks to me. Even now I can be found on most weekends hiking, biking, Nordic skiing, paddling, snowshoeing or floating through Vermont. Nothing makes me happier than sharing these activities with new friends.

Over the years I've traveled internationally, savoring the tastes of myriad food cultures and experiencing the outdoors far and wide; but something keeps pulling me back to my fine little state of Vermont. Speaking from experience, I believe Vermont's collision of amazing outdoor opportunities and world-class food/drink culture is as good as it gets.

I hope you'll join me on a trip to Camel's Hump, Stone Corrall Brewery, the Huntington Gorge, Prohibition Pig, Mt. Mansfield, Cabot Creamery, Smugglers Notch, Lake Champlain or any of the other countless Vermont gems.
