Team OP is just that, OP! We are 3 upperclassman in their final years of undergrad, all with the mentality of going on big adventures and who thrive off of experiencing all that life has to offer. We’ve already gone on many fantastic adventures, with everywhere from the volcanoes of Hawaii, to the paths on the Appalachian trail, to the Mountains of Europe under our belt. We want to step it up further, for our hunger for experience we share is bar none. Competitors at heart, we are 3 athletes who thrive off a competition and the energy we bounce off each other, making us unstoppable when given a challenge.
Breaking it down abit, we got 3 people unique guys teaming up. To start we got Nick, the explorer. A fierce competitor and avid adventurer, he’s the kind of guy who wants to plan to get things done, and won’t be swayed away from doing it!Next we have Zack, the seeker. Definitely the visionary of the group, with his cinematography skills and ability to think outside the box leaving him a notch above the rest. The type of guy to really dream big, then follow through with sheer determination! Finally we have Ian, the motivator. It’s hard to think of anything that can phase this guy, with his cool head, quick wit, and adaptability leaving him and those around him stress free. Some say Oxford dictionary is going to change the word “calm” to “Ian” in their next addition… but he aight sweating about it.
How ya'll doing, I'm Ian! I'm currently studying at Michigan State University with a major in marketing! I've always believed your life is defined by your experiences, and I'm always on the hunt for more. I've had the chance to explore all over, from the Rockies and Appalachian mountains, to the streets of London and Paris, to the beaches of Italy. I'm someone who loves going with the flow, and is always looking to enjoy the nature around me!
I'm a personal believer that the greatest thing about travelling the world is the people you get the chance to meet. You experience so many different opinions, beliefs, and cultures, and it allows you to become more complete as a person. I'm excited to see what the world has in store, and I think this competitions is one of the best opportunities to do that!
Hey everyone my name is Nick Penn, and I'm a 24 year old college student living one step at a time. I'm a businesses major, while coaching cross country at a local high school. I love trying and doing new things.

I am a Young Entrepreneur who loves adventure and traveling as well as long runs on the beach. While hiking the Appalachians I fell 20 feet and twisted my ankle, the only option for for our group was to keep hiking. (what a trooper) As an Adventurist I have traveled to Canada, Hawaii, Mexico, Jamaica, and all over the United States of America. Through those adventures I have learned different cultures and different personality's.
Overall I love adventure getting out there and living life to the fullest! Our lifes are too short to just live in one corner of the world. With this ones in a life time trip I plan on making some great memories and building relationships that I will be able to keep for a life time.
