Mike Appleby was born in Georgia but travelled the world in his 24 year US Navy career. His final Navy assignment was to the Defense Depot Ogden and following his retirement from the Navy he and his family decided to stay in the Ogden area. He spent 14 years working for Iomega in the Customer Service and Logistics areas after his Navy retirement. Retiring in 2011 for real, Mike and his wife Sheryl have become avid hikers and really appreciate the variety and accessibility of the trails in Weber County (most of which they have hiked). Mike and Sheryl are also working on their bucket list of hiking adventures, including New Zealand, Switzerland, Patagonia, Spain, Italy, Norway and their latest, the Tour du Mont Blanc, at the corner of France, Switzerland and Italy. Mike enjoys introducing folks to the many hiking opportunities in Weber County.
