Affiliations: I dabble as a gear tester and often found playing outdoors. Tactical operator/instructor. As a member of TheDyrt’s Ranger gear review program, I occasionally receive discounted or free products to test in exchange for honest and practical reviews. As a “Pro Deal” member,I am constantly trying new gear from various manufacturers to find trustworthy items that make my outdoor pursuits easier and more enjoyable. As a 'senior' outdoor enthusiast, I have been fortunate to have not only my personal perception of gear, but also that of my children and their children which has provided well-rounded observations.
Varied outdoor interests. Passionate about hiking/backpacking, paddling canoes and kayaks (flat water fishing and tripping/fresh or salt), bicycling (road, mtb, CX, bikepacking).
Favorite haunts: For spectacular long views and epic hikes -Colorado. For fun, Appalachians, Eastern Sierras, Rockies, Smokies, Shenandoah, and everywhere in Michigan, PA, Ohio and WV. For quiet solitude behind a paddle the mangrove estuaries and swamps of SWFL and Algonquin Provincial Park, Canada lakes. Enjoy cycling anywhere I'm not freezing.
I try to do these in equal parts throughout the year.
