Kurt is a hiker, mountain biker, sea kayaker, and skier who resides in Ottawa, Ontario and enjoys travel to Newfoundland and Labrador. He is the founder of www.trailpeak.com - a site he started after 15 years in the tech industry, which currently includes over 10,000 Canadian trails. The site allows for GPS sharing, wiki, photo upload, personal trail wishlists for members, reviews, and more recently video uploads. Anyone can add a trail. The site is free and volunteer operated. In 2010 Kurt brought 5 trailpeak editors to Newfoundland. In August 2011, 2 trailpeak editors will be blogging on hiking and heritage in Southern Labrador and North Western Newfoundland.
