Legendary Hikes with Kyle

Thanks to a shared interest in fine television (South Park and Heroes) and high-end beverages (Jägermesiter), Kyle and Jacob stayed in close contact after first meeting in '04 up at Michigan Tech. Over the years they both got involved in student government and event programming, sharing similar views on budgeting processes and other cool things. Jacob convinced Kyle to try hiking with him in the fall of '08, though his last trip was unfortunately cut short.
