Meet Christopher Kracht – Gaia GPS Adventure Support Team


Chris joined Gaia GPS in July 2017 as a part of the Communications Team, to support Gaia GPS users and write articles. He uses Gaia GPS with his offroad and overlanding adventures.

He has driven the backroads of Baja, Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Washington, and Idaho while using Gaia GPS for navigation. He especially enjoys multi-day border to border trips where the goal is to stay off pavement as much as possible.

Chris is a professional pilot and finds inspiration for overlanding trips from the air. He has over 20 years experience using a variety of GPS applications in aviation and outdoor sports. He has been an avid Gaia GPS user since 2013.

He and his wife live in Arizona, a paradise for off-road adventures. They love international travel and have visited many countries in Western Europe, Central America, and South America. His life goal is to drive from Alaska to Tierra Del Fuego.

His personal motto is “the world is a big place. You have to get out there and see it. Even better if you can do so on dirt!” Look for him and his wife on a trail near you. You never know where their next adventure might take them.
