I've loved being outside all my life. When we were kids, my brother and I would get up early in the morning, eat a quick breakfast and then disappear into the woods all day until my dad came home from work and whistled for us to come to dinner. Dad would also take us backpacking as much as he could (thank you dad!). That is the gift I cherish the most from him...the love of nature.
The wilds is where I feel at peace, confident and alive. Life is brought back down to bedrock choices...shelter, water, food. Everything above that is luxury.
Here's a few pics from my past. I'm the younger one. Enjoy!
