- Geoff loved Gardiner
- Geoff loved to challenge his body
- Geoff loved to help kids and people achieve more than they thought possible—especially if they had a background or handicap issue that makes life more difficult for them.
Geoff fought depression. When it first struck at about age 20, he fought back with Achieve Your Dreams Expedition in which he, Nate Paulson, Woody Miller, and David Bradley paddled 2-two man sea kayaks from Yellowstone National Park to the Gulf of Mexico in 110 days. Along the way they stopped to deliver motivational messages to groups of kids and they touched countless lives.
