Elizabeth "Liz" Sampey grew up exploring the woods near her family farm via bicyle, cross-country skis, horses and other crafts. She now explores the world using more technically advanced versions of those things - packrafts, Revel bikes and now, Titan Straps. Liz is also an ultra-endurance athelete who has established new bikepacking routes in far-flung places and done numerous badass, long-distance races. She holds the record for the Arizona Trail Race 750. When not exploring the world by bike, she runs a boutique adventure coaching and physical therapy business and lives in her van in the American West. Follow her on Instaram @elizasampey.

Steve Fassbinder, known as “Doom” within the tight-knit mountain bike industry, started adventuring at age 14. He raced single-speed mountain bikes until his 30s, but eventually started focusing on exploring huge backcountry landscapes. Passionate about creative, human powered, low-impact travel, he’s likely explored more of the Southwest United States by both bike and packraft than any other person. Doom has a dual career in building. From cabins to full-blown container homes, Doom does everything from framing to welding to drywall (which he hates) to painting. Follow his first container home build on @titanstraps_construction. Read our Q&A with Doom about his container home build.
