Mikah Meyer, Travel Beyond Convention

Mikah Meyer is an LGBTQ activist on a mission to become the youngest American to visit all 417 United States National Parks. His father’s sudden death in 2005 changed the way Mikah saw life and his own future. It took a “dream road trip” to cope with his father’s passing, so he returned to that idea on the 11th anniversary of his death by launching this world record trip.

“Retirement isn’t guaranteed, age 50 isn’t guaranteed, and tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.”
