Cabernet is a junior in dietetics at MSU. His goal in life is to see, smell, taste, and experience all of the most beautiful countrysides of Europe on foot (no vehicular transportation, please) as well as becoming a celebrated 3 michelin star chef. He enjoys doing anything and everything outdoors and he does it in style. Cabernet particularly enjoys camping and hiking ridiculously long distances as it builds character and toughens the legs. On his list of adventures in the near future he plans on embarking on a solitary hike from the southern tip of Scotland to its northern cape (approx 300 or so miles) and then hop on over to Ireland if time permits; with only a backpack full of supplies, comfy shoes (and a Bruce Wayne credit card).
