Jill is the founder, editor, and all around Head Geargal here on Geargals.com. Jill grew up on Kodiak, Alaska and puts considerable mental energy into figuring out ways to go back to the island for a spell. Jill loves being outside anywhere in the world and has traveled to fifteen countries and, more notably, over forty Alaskan communities off the road system. When she's not mountain biking, skiing, or hiking, she likes to explore the planet on a motorcycle, because motorcycles let the driver be outside. When she's not seeing the world for fun, she's seeing it for work as a disaster response planning consultant.
