Reid “Red” Baker is a reserved man who has enjoyed sports and outdoor activities since he was a young man. While you’re still brewing up a fresh batch of morning breath sleeping in your warm bed, Red is already past his stretch phase and could’ve already filled a milk jug with his sweat. As consistent as a metronome, hard as a bar top, smooth as $1000 bed sheets, and as frugal as a single moth living in the great depression.
Red’s outdoor adventures started as a kid; wandering through the woods with his cousin on his grandpa’s farm. During a time where few cell phones existed, Red and his cousin learned the “ins and outs” of the outdoors without technology getting into the way.
As time went on, Red split a lot of his time between soccer and the outdoors. Having the ability to play soccer in England, Iceland, Costa Rica, as well as all over the USA. The University of Kentucky became home for a few years while Red played collegiate soccer and enjoyed the southern lifestyle.
Red now finds himself back in the Midwest. He lives and works full-time just outside Peoria, IL, where he is the General Manager of a shop that specializes in aftermarket agricultural parts. He focuses on keeping the bills paid, staying fit and chasing a dream with some good buddies.
