Me, getting a little...moist at the Gullfoss waterfall in Iceland.

Hey, I'm Brendan. I'm a young(ish) professional(ish) living in the Midwest. I enjoy helping others find their inner sense of adventure and see this great big world of ours through their own eyes. I also run a tour company called altSTATES Travel.

I've been to a lot of cool places and, more importantly, met tons of incredible people around the world, each with their own story. Here's mine.

From Wikipedia: "A tailplane, also known as a horizontal stabiliser, is a small lifting surface located on the tail (empennage) behind the main lifting surfaces of a fixed-wing aircraft as well as other non-fixed-wing aircraft such as helicopters and gyroplanes. The function of the tailplane is to provide stability and control."
