From the beginning...
Growing up Jon always dreamed of being an international guide, helping people feel more comfortable in a setting where they would not be without him. Elizabeth always knew she wanted to travel the world...and have the time of her life every step along the way.
The two of them met in college at Colorado State University on a backcountry skiing adventure. After getting to know each other on the ski slopes their love for one another solidified on the whitewater rivers of Colorado. Working as guides through college they both developed the practical skills necessary to navigate class IV & V rapids as well as learned how to take care of groups of people in extreme, high-consequence, sometimes uncomfortable and stressful situations.
While in school their relationship foundation was built on traveling, both within the US and internationally, searching for epic adventures.
After graduating in the fall Jon moved to Nepal to work as a rafting and trekking guide while Elizabeth finished school. Upon Elizabeth's graduation the following spring Jon returned home to the States. They moved to Idaho to continue their guiding careers on the big-volume multi-day rivers of central Idaho and Oregon.
Here they continued to sharpen the necessary skills to take groups of people into remote locations for multiple days at a time. Working as trip leaders all over the state of Idaho Jon and Elizabeth learned not only how to help people survive in the wilderness, they created situations where ordinary people could go into the outdoors and thrive; feeling safe, secure and well taken care of in sometimes less than ideal circumstances.
After the summer river guiding season ended Elizabeth and Jon would again pack their backpacks and jump on an airplane to explore the world. Through the years they visited numerous countries and had countless experiences. Some places they were happy to have seen and were quite certain they would never return, other places amazed them and developed special places in their hearts.
It is these special places, and a desire to share them with others, that fostered the creation of Inbody Expeditions. For years Jon and Elizabeth thrived making people comfortable in the Idaho backcountry. Now they have created the opportunity to guide you through some of the most incredible places in the world, knowing you are in best hands possible, enabling you to thrive not just survive your dream international adventure.
