Get him in a canoe with his fiance and his puppy and he is right where he wants to be.  Danny grew up in the Ozarks, graduating from Glendale and Drury.  After graduation he moved to NYC for 4 years and later moved to Ecuador where he worked as the Expedition Manager for a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World.  Family led him back home to Springfield and his passion for the outdoors led him to start 37 North Expeditions.

CRistina Bustamante

Cristina moved to the Midwest from Ecuador, South America.  Her passion for anything outdoors comes from a culture there that truly appreciates their vast and surreal natural landscapes.  In her free time she loves getting on her mountain bike or trail running with her husky puppy.  She is an avid outdoors woman, that passionately enjoys helping others explor the great outdoors.



By day, Sarah is a Stormwater Specialist at the City of Springfield, where she protects local water quality by enforcing environmental regulations. She has degrees in Environmental Science and Biology and believes in the power of nature to help heal mind, body and spirit. When 37 North came along, she jumped at the chance to help people connect to nature and themselves through outdoor meditation. In her spare time, Sarah can be found exploring Ozark trails, hugging trees and planning adventures! 



Moved here from the Pacific Northwest in 2004 and fell in love with the changing seasons and scenery of the Ozarks and surrounding area. Works for a local solar company helping to provide alternative energy options as well as promote renewable energy for the state of Missouri. In the off time she loves floating down the river and exploring the Ozarks with her family as well as helping others connect with the outdoors to create new memories and spark new passions.
