Tanner Welch

Tanner Welch, whitewater guide for ARTA River TripsTanner is one of those paradoxical people who can think about things forever but can’t sit still for a moment. If he isn’t musing and moving simultaneously, he’s fidgeting and figuring restlessly. While this can make him slightly disruptive, it also makes him incredibly productive. He has built his own tree fort, fly rod, touring bike, drift boat, Volkswagen bus interior, and tiny house (while concurrently planning and taking camping, fishing, biking, boating, and road trips). Of course he “studied motion” at Western Washington University, earning a degree in Physics while also climbing, sailing, playing soccer, and catching steelhead. He resides up in Idaho; but obviously, he hasn’t settled down.
