and raised on Long Island, NY, Jack Thyen (SCJack) did not start
seriously hiking until divorce set him free in 1999. He can
be found almost any weekend day hiking the trails in Upstate SC
and Western NC. His favorite place to hike is the Mountain
Bridge Wilderness area.
During the week, SCJack
works as an Industrial Engineering Manager for a pair of Spartanburg,
SC manufacturing plants. He does his part to make sure there
is an adequate supply of draft beer, by maximizing the efficiency
of the only North American Beer Keg manufacturer.
Outside of hiking and
work, SCJack is an avid Virginia Tech Football Fan and has been
know to occasionally hack that little white ball around the golf
course. In his spare time he enjoys relaxing with a good book
and working on a little side business where he buys and sells Hess
