Stanley McPartland is a second-generation Nevadan whose passion for adventure and photography began after his grandfather Henry gave him a Brownie Hawkeye and took him exploring when he was seven years old. They roamed the Sierra Nevada mountains and areas around Pyramid Lake and Honey Lake in Henry's 1960 pickup truck and camper. Stanley spent time in Washington state and California before returning to Nevada in the 1980s. Stanley was introduced to motorcycles at age ten and rode until his mid-20s. He picked up adventure motorcycling about 4 years ago and is a lifelong bicyclist and hiker. He spent his career in the corporate world of Information Technology while pursuing adventures on weekends. After retirement, he made the transition to full-time adventure and travel. He lives with Susan, his wife of 43 years, and a rescued Golden Retriever in Minden, Nevada.
