I love the outdoors and everything about it, wilderness adventures are most favored. I camp all year round and especially enjoy the winter months. It is sooo peaceful.

I adore all animals, in fact, I have never met one I didn't like! They are my career and have been for the last 26 years and I can't imagine doing anything else except for maybe a job that combined animals and the wilderness, wouldn't that be grand!

I am fortunate to live in beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada.  We have a lot of great wilderness hiking trails, protected wilderness areas and National Parks. I take advantage of these when ever possible whether it be by foot or boat!
