Roads Rivers and Trails

Dream. Plan. Live.

Sam Nelson

Hello! I’m Sam. All of my favorite things are best enjoyed outside. The majority of my outdoor experiences have been paddling rivers throughout the Southeast, around the west coast, and an international paddling trip to Honduras. In addition to working for RRT, I work in the ICU as an RN. My passion for healthcare started with a Wilderness First Responder course several years ago. I continue to enjoy balancing my time between healthcare and getting outside as much as possible. I’m a big fan of a good suffer fest AKA long runs, “bad weather”, and tough portages. The most important element to a good time is sharing it with good people.
