QT Triplett is a current employee of the US Forest Service. An active individual, Triplett considers himself to be an all-around outdoorsman!
Traveling Old Roads…
For as long as he can remember, QT Triplett has loved the great outdoors. An avid hiker to this day, Triplett now wanders off the beaten path to explore old roads and visit old buildings. He sees his outdoor adventures as a way to dive into history in a unique way. However, not everyone views antiquated buildings in such a way. For some, ‘out with the old, in with the new’ is a day-to-day philosophy. But this outdoor adventurer simply couldn’t disagree more! Realizing this, he hopes to act as a protecting force in preserving the history encapsulated in old buildings by supporting initiatives that feel the same way. At the local level, he hopes to become more involved with historical preservation organizations.
