I have a healthy appetite for exploring off-trail locations I find while browsing Satellite maps.

I enjoy old archaeology sites, urban exploring in sewers, tunnels, caves, abandoned buildings and old architecture.

I like buying used gear, testing it out and reviewing it. 

Some of my favorite things are snorkeling fresh water, cliff jumping, eating gourmet food that I find along the trail. Oh, I am also in search of the ultimate burger wherever I go.

Outside Magazine voted Duluth MN the best city (2014) in the country for access to the outdoors. It really is spectacular. The North Shore of Lake Superior is a national gem. 

I have many years of experience with gear, trends, sites (domestic and foreign). Nevertheless, the game is always changing so I'm learning a ton as I go, especially from YOU on Trailspace!

Claustrophobia and vertigo do not affect me in the least bit.

Mantra: a little calculated risk is good for a person.

If you ever find yourself in MN and want to explore some excellent, non-mainstream places -feel free to ask me where the great spots are!
