Colt Bagnulo 

I live in the Green Mountains of Vermont where I spend much of time hiking, biking, and Nordic skiing.  Exploring the mountains and surrounding wilderness, and the adventures that follow, are one of my top sources of fun and learning.  My brothers and I are home schooled which allows me to have a nature-centric curriculum and ample time to play outdoors. I also enjoy playing the violin, reading, and playing a variety of different competitive sports. My favorite saying is “fun is good.”

John Bagnulo

My family and I live in the center of Vermont’s Green Mountains.  The mountains have always played a significant role in my life.  They have served as a classroom, a source of spiritual connectivity, and a training ground to develop both physical and mental fitness.  The experiences that I have had in different mountain ranges and with various indigenous mountain cultures have collectively shaped my perspective and approach to life.  Mountains encourage resilience, resourcefulness, and a level of self-sufficiency that lead to a sense of independence and freedom that spills over into all areas of life.  Although I have been fortunate enough to climb in most of the World’s largest mountain ranges, I learned long ago that the same lessons and benefits can be found on most mountains.
