I have lived in northern Indiana, Central and South Florida, and Western Washington State. This has given me the great opportunity of hiking in various terrains, conditions, and weather.  I have also been fortunate to travel to parts of the Caribbean, Central America, and the South Pacific and experience some great hikes and climbs. I really want to do some exploring in Montana and Arizona, the Southeast in general, and Boundary Waters. I also SCUBA, boat, dance, cook, scrapbook, knit, and generally interested in green living!
