Scott Showers served in the Marine Corps infantry for four years as a machine gunner. During his time in service, he deployed in support of the initial invasion of Iraq.
In his civilian life, Scott loves to spend time outdoors, especially hiking and camping. Since his separation, he finds a need to connect with his sense of adventure again and to be able to connect with other humans. Through this expedition, Scott hopes to get out of his comfort zone and take on challenges that he would never do otherwise.
