Thayer's passion for off-roading and overlanding came from growing up in the mountains of Colorado, namely Crested Butte and Vail, and spent her free time as a teenager driving down winding dirt roads in cars that probably would have preferred paved ones. It just seemed natural to her to keep driving farther and deeper into the mountains and deserts as she ended up owning trucks that were more capable of handling the terrain than the original '80s Subaru DL's that she had. She lives with her husband, her two elementary school age daughters and their two cats on a farm outside Boulder, Colorado.
