Trevor Thomas Blind Hiker
TREVOR THOMAS, 47-- aka Zero/Zero & Tennille
Thomas and Tennille graduated from Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) in September, 2012. Since that time, the pair has trekked 6,000 miles together, completing numerous thru hikes, including the 1,000 mile Mountains to Sea Trail (NC), The Colorado Trail, Long Trail, & the Tahoe Rim Trail. They have summited Mt. Elbert (CO) and have gone on numerous treks throughout the U.S. Tennille is the only guide dog to have been successfully trained to perform back country guide work in addition to her normal guide duties.
In order to continue the work he began with Team FarSight, Trevor established a nonprofit that would impact future generations of the blind. Team FarSight Foundation's mission is to inspire blind children and to provide backcountry activities for them so they can gain the independence and self-reliance needed to become self-sufficient & productive adults. Together with its partners, Team FarSight Foundation provides fun & challenging activities that allow participants to achieve what was previously considered impossible. In 2014, Team FarSight Foundation, Inc., was recognized as a 501(c)(3) charity; its name is a tribute to the founder's original teammates.

Team FarSight was the name given to the hiking team assembled for Trevor's 2010 thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. His goal for that trek was to challenge societal misconceptions about the abilities of the blind and to push the boundaries of what is considered possible for a blind person to achieve. Through his actions, he hoped to inspire others to step outside their own personal comfort zone so they too could achieve larger goals that they thought possible in their own lives.
Over the years the makeup of the team has changed, but the goal has remained the same. Since 2012, Team FarSight has consisted mainly of Trevor & Tennille, since Trevor usually chooses to hike solo whenever possible. He does this so he can continue to challenge himself and further his own personal goals.
