Matthew Spanburg, Co-Founder
Matt was born in Florida but at a young age moved to the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri where he would finish school and then move back to Florida for college. As a child, Matt loved the outdoors and was always looking for an adventure. Growing up on a ranch right on a lake, there was always something to do! His dad (an eagle scout) and mother (who loved the outdoors) always pushed him to be outside and try different sports. Growing up on a lake, he was constantly on the water. At the age of 10 years old Matt discovered the sport of wake-boarding and traveled the country competing and acquired sponsorships by some of the largest water sports companies. Matt feels that traveling will teach you and shape you more as a person than any classroom could ever do! This is the exact reason he decided to start the Travelers Store. At an early age he found out how expensive camping gear can be and he believed there was no reason for why things should cost so much money. So he researched and researched and found manufactures that made the same products at a much more affordable price where he could pass the saving onto the customers! Helping people keep money in their pocket, so they could afford to travel more, thats what being a modern traveler is all about!
