I've backpacked since I was a Boy Scout in the '50s. In earlier days (70s thru the 90s) I was a canoe racer, instructor, and wilderness paddler. Then I got into sea kayaking where speed and big waves hooked me.

Now that I've retired from teaching I live in Las Vegas. I'm backpacking all over the mountain west. Also I've gotten back into backcountry skiing. For 10 years in Erie, Pennsylvania I was a Nordic petroller. Even got to patrol the '80 Olympics at Lake Placid and be an Army ROTC cadet winter survival instructor. Now I've joined the Las vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort Mountain Patrol as an alpine patroller. "It's a great life if ya don't weaken."
