Jared grew up in Beaverton, Oregon before moving to Eugene to attend the University of Oregon. It was there he studied the art of frisbee tossing, the joys and heartaches of college football, and occasionally business classes. Jared graduated in 2004 and began work at a financial services firm, where he continues to be today.
Nearly a decade later, Jared continues to question the amount of time and money he dedicates to college football. He spends summers floating the Deschutes River, boating around Central Oregon and taking his dog Roxy around town. During frigid, snowy months, you can find him boarding the slopes of Mt. Bachelor while “Journey Radio” plays in his ear buds.
Jared's favorite drink is a whisky-cola.

Neil grew up in Paisley, Oregon and has had many outdoor hobbies like fly fishing and hunting. A few reports (not police reports) indicate Neil's mild addiction to golf, which first began at Western Oregon University. To this day he sneaks away to perfect the art of creating sandstorms while taking sips from his flask.
After 8 rainy years in the valley, Neil moved to Central Oregon high desert starting a career in real estate. When not working, Neil enjoys spending time with his wife, playing volleyball in the sand, Steelhead fishing, and volunteering with Deschutes County Search and Rescue’s Swiftwater Team.
Neil's favorite drink is straight whisky.
