There is nothing quite like the Wilderness, I think Carl Sandburg
captured its essence in his poem of the same title.
I like to spend my time with my family & friends. I love
Hikiing as much as I love running rivers. I'd do it everyday of my
life if I could. I also enjoy a good mountain bike ride & I
love outdoor rock climbing. Snowshoeing is fun, and I snowboard

Books: A Sand County Almanac: And Sketches Sketches Here And There

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

I've been trying my whole life not to hate running. We're at a mild
dislike right now, and maybe someday we'll even learn to like each
other. Just a lil' bit.
Also, I don't dislike cats per say, I am just VERY allergic. I
think they're actually pretty cool animals. And kittens? Come on,
