About us

OUR COMPANY BEGAN WITH A VISION:
TO CELEBRATE EXPLORATION, TRAVEL, AND ADVENTURE AS A WAY OF LIFE. THE SAN PERDIDO TRADING COMPANY CREATOR AND FOUNDER – DR.TIM KING -- HAS SPENT A LIFETIME OF TRAVEL AND ADVENTURE AS AN ARCHAEOLOGIST AND A LINGUIST: FROM THE RUINS OF THE ANCIENT MESOAMERICAN CITY OF TEOTIHUACAN, TO THE KALAUPAPA LEPER COLONY OF MOLOKA'I, TO THE FROZEN TUNDRA OF SIBERIA (TO THAW-OUT A FROZEN WOOLLY MAMMOTH). FROM HIS TRAVELS, TIM CAME TO TWO GREAT REALIZATIONS: 
1). FROM ADVENTURE, WE LEARN WHO WE ARE AND HOW THE WORLD TRULY IS. AND 2). AS LOST CITIES BECOME FOUND (AND TURNED INTO TOURIST THEME PARKS), THE LAST UNCHARTED ISLANDS ARE MAPPED BY SATELLITE (AND SOLD TO VACATION RESORTS), AND REMOTE VILLAGES QUIETLY DISCARD THEIR RICH CULTURES IN FAVOR OF CABLE TELEVISION AND RESTAURANT FRANCHISES, THE ONCE VAST WORLD IS BECOMING MUCH SMALLER AND SUBSEQUENTLY, ADVENTURE ITSELF MAY SOON GO EXTINCT. 
TO ANSWER THIS CONCERN, TIM (WHO IS ALSO A GRAPHIC DESIGNER) BEGAN TO AUTHOR ENTIRE NATIONS; TO CREATE LANDS WHERE LOST SPECIES STILL SURVIVE, WHERE COFFEE FRANCHISES WILL NEVER TAKE ROOT, WHERE SECRET SOCIETIES STILL REMAIN HIDDEN IN THE SHADOWS, WHERE CULTURES WILL NEVER SURRENDER THEIR TRADITIONS AND WAYS OF LIFE, AND WHERE OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXPLORATION AND ADVENTURE WILL NEVER, EVER VANISH. THE SAN PERDIDO TRADING COMPANY IS ABOUT REACHING DEEP INTO THESE DREAM WORLDS AND PULLING TANGIBLE ARTIFACTS FROM THEM AND INTO REALITY.
