Max Russell

If you see me in the shop, I’d love to talk about your lighterpack, my lighterpack, YKK zippers, or other more normal human things.

About Max Russell

Hey I’m Max and I do most of the training and outreach here at good ol’ BGC. My wife Emily and I moved to Idaho so she could attend Idaho State University for their Physician Assistant program. She’s an ultra slayer and my favorite human.

My love for the great outdoors began with family camping trips into the Great Smoky Mountains as a kid, and really took off when I went backcountry with friends in Denali National Park. My primary hobby is backpacking. The places I’ve been able to see, the conversations I’ve had, and the things I’ve learned about myself in the backcountry have made getting outside one of the most important things I do.

If you see me in the shop, I’d love to talk about your lighterpack, my lighterpack, YKK zippers, or other more normal human things.

This year, my goal is to push myself to get out of my comfort zone in the great outdoors. And while I’m at it, make Abe Great Again. You can follow my lack of social media content @maxwell.russell.
