Peter Vacco is a journeyman industrial mechanic, accomplished trekker, and cottage manufacturer. Peter is most well known for his work in the realm of steel fabrication, and his solo long-distance trekking : notably the CDT, Canol Road Historic Trail, one of the first Thru Hikes of the entire Brooks Range, and a 13 year odyessy on the Continental Divide from the Mexican Border to the Bering Straights.
Vacco was raised in Lafayette, CA by an exceptional set of parents, and lives a simple, efficient life in central CA. He has a great family of friends, and is the luckiest man ever to have walked this earth.
His penchant for sleeping outside is the result of a unique parenting decision that started the last day of kindergarten, when Pete and Claire convinced their son that sleeping in the backyard was the pinnacle of 5 yr old sangfroid. (we KNOW why they did this .. ) He slept out there until school started in the fall, and the routine continued through high school.
Peter is currently involved with a section trek across the North American Arctic, manufacturing head nets, and clearing a historic trail down to the American River. All this might be undone in a moment, if he found a plant with visionary management hell bent on doing Great Things.

I am indebted without limit to the good people who stayed home / went to war, and did the real work that keeps the world running.
Feel free to ignore the "dates" on the pictures. That camera button gets pushed by mistake.
