We're stoked to kick off the new year with a brand new ambassador, Dan Human.

Dan is an avid outdoorsman from western New York. Whether traversing the trails, climbing a mountain or paddling a wilderness river, you'll likely find him in the backcountry somewhere, along with his adventurous preschooler. When he's not out exploring, he's inside writing about his adventures and inspiring others to get out and explore more.

Dan has climbed all 46 of the 4,000-foot High Peaks in the Adirondack Park and has even thru-hiked the 2,160 mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, solo. (Both highly impressive feats!) He is currently working on hiking the 46 High Peaks again during the winter months and hopes to thru-hike another long trail again in the future.

Dan is a crew member of his local search and rescue team and the training chairman where he enjoys organizes real-life survival scenarios.

You can never be too careful about having safe drinking water no matter where are you or what you're doing, and this is especially true for Dan since his young son is often out adventuring with him. "PURINIZE offers an easy way to ensure that our water is bug-free and safe to drink," says Dan.
