Steve worked in the corporate life for 18 years, but after hiking the Appalachian Trail he wanted to fulfill his dreams by owning a company, moving to Tennessee and owning a log cabin.
His passion for kids has created a kids camp for boys from single parent households. In 2016 Truth in Nature will be open to middle age and high school age boys to make a positive impact on the community and beyond.

Everyone has the unique opportunity to hike with the friendliest llamas in the US!
1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
Ive been open for 11 years and I started by taking a llama trek myself 14 yrs ago. I fell in love with the llamas within minutes and decided that this would be a great job for me!
2. What is your company's mission?
They are loving creatures and are so fun to be around. And to get people, especially families, the opportunity to get back out in nature and enjoy some clean, healthy fun and exercise.
3. What does your company specialize in?
Fun, easy hiking treks that get entire families out together to enjoy something unique and memorable.
4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?
Sandy Sgrillo is the owner. Some of her past carreers were artist, actress, dancer, bartender and limo chauffeur in Miami.
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
The short, affordable 2-Hour treks are just enough to get the "feel" for llamas and its not too strenuous or time-consuming for tourists.
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
When people fall in love with the llamas and don't want to leave or give them up at the end of a trek, is the BEST compliment I could ever get.
