    Brandon & Adam - TAR 23



    Name: Brandon Squyres

    Age: 34

    Hometown: Chico, Calif.

    Connection to your teammate: Beard lovers and childhood friends

    Current occupation: Contractor

    Describe what you do: I install fire sprinkler systems.

    3 words to describe you: Funny, boisterous and outgoing.

    Favorite hobbies: Playing music, swimming and traveling.

    What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Touring the entire U.S. and Europe with my bands, Cold Blue Mountain, Amarok, and The Makai.

    What famous person reminds you of yourself? Jason Lee

    What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Sacha Baron Cohen Ė He doesnít mind wearing skimpy clothes and Iíve seen him naked more than Iíd like to admit.

    What scares you most about traveling? Maybe Iíve seen too many movies, but the possibility of abductions.

    What excites you most about traveling? Seeing new places.

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We both get excited easily and like to talk a lot which may cause some communication issues when under high pressure obstacles.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: He grows a better moustache than me. It really grinds my gears.

    What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Antarctica, because itís so extreme and desolate. I canít imagine what it would be like to see in person.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I want to show America how awesome Adam and I are and spend time with my friend who I donít see as often as Iíd like.


    Name: Adam Switzer

    Age: 34

    Hometown: Chico, Calif.

    Connection to your teammate: Childhood friend

    Current occupation: Eco-friendly farmer

    Describe what you do: I am a U.S.F.S. seasonal wildlife firefighter currently working fulltime on a 22 acre farm in the woods that I own to create an international hostel based on organic permaculture, sustainable living and alternative construction techniques.

    3 words to describe you: Adventurous, outgoing and hurley-burley (constant state of chaos, flux and clamor).

    Favorite hobbies: Mountain biking, back-packing and building (bikes, houses, inventions, etc.).

    What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Being able to fight fires in the summers, travel the world in the winters and still save enough over the years to buy my 22 acre farm in the woods.

    What famous person reminds you of yourself? Mad Max with a sprinkle of Robin Williamís stand up.

    What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Abe Lincoln or Henry Rollins.

    What scares you most about traveling? Nothing really. Maybe it eventually ending. I often end up staying in sketchy quarters to stay on the cheap but you just have to be more aware, not scared.

    What excites you most about traveling? Food! I love almost all food and love trying even the most freakish grub. I also really enjoy meeting new people and seeing new cultures. It usually restores my faith in humanity. Lastly, animals! Iím an animal freak. I studied zoology a little in college and usually head for the jungle.

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: It will be hard to listen to each other when we are amped up and screaming.
    Pet peeve about your teammate: His straight edge and when Iím on a tear he provokes any possible trouble for me to get into. Not really a pet peeve because he is always there to get me out of whatever jam he gets me into!

    What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Madagascar Ė unique bio diversity that evolved separate than almost any other, or Mongolia to buy a horse, travel the plains and experience nomadic culture.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Having a riot and traveling with my great buddy who I donít get to see enough in our current situations. I want to make people laugh, cry, love and hate us. See how we stack up in the endÖ are we really the best?

    I like these guys. Sounds like Adam has done a fair bit of travelling, in sketchy places, so might be more comfortable than others when killer fatigue sets in. Loved the bit about seeing his partner naked more than he would care to admit. Ha.
