Sonny Hughey with Friends

READ Sonny’s story BELOW

After earning his BA in Physics from Hastings College, Sonny returned to his hometown of San Diego to conduct full scale earthquake research. In his free time he could be found body surfing in his fins near Ocean Beach pier. In 2014, he ventured to South America and lived alongside the gauchos, learning their longstanding traditions, living simply off the land, and travelling solely by horse. Upon his return, he ventured across the U.S., and had a rewarding stint in marketing for professional baseball. Sonny currently lives in the historic Union Hill of Richmond, Virginia and has integrated into an array of fields in the mid-Atlantic community.

  1. To experience everything that came my way
  2. To learn from my experiences
  3. To apply what I learned to my life and share it with others Read More

Two years ago, I saw some images of Patagonia—a place I’d never even thought about going to. A place with snowcapped mountains that sloped down to crystalline lakes, scattered with trees of green, brown, and orange. For me, the landscape defined “Land Before Time,” relatively untouched by the modern world. Soon after, I came across the word Gaucho, the Argentine Cowboy who cultivates and experiences the land via horseback.

That did it for me. I HAD to go to this place and to experience it in true Gaucho style.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever said this:

“Oh, I’d love to do that, but I can’t afford it.”

That’s exactly where I was. Not only did I realize Read More
