Chompians of the Month: Brad Ryan and Grandma Joy

Brad & Grandma Joy


We’re thrilled to feature Brad Ryan and Grandma Joy as our July Chompians of the Month! Brad and his Grandma Joy have traveled together since she was 85 years old in 2015. They've driven over 40,000 miles together on the open roads of America on a quest to visit all 63 US National Parks. So far, they’ve visited 53 of 63 parks!

Brad and Grandma Joy are game changers as they break the rules when it comes to intergenerational travel and age-defying adventure. Brad has devoted time to help his grandmother experience the world in ways she wasn’t able to before and has touched so many hearts along the way!

Hike, hike, hike!

Brad & Grandma Joy Hiking!


How do you consider yourself a “game changer?” This is 100% open to your interpretation!

We break rules when it comes to intergenerational travel and age-defying adventure. Watch the video of Grandma Joy rolling down a sand dune in Colorado if you don’t believe me.

What’s the best thing you do for your personal health everyday (mental or physical)?

We spend a little time in nature each day.

What is your favorite Chomps product?

I like all of them, but my favs are the original beef, jalapeno beef, sea salt beef and italian style beef.

How does Chomps fuel your lifestyle?

We all need sustenance.
