Traveler. Entrepreneur. Adventurer. Ventriloquist. Just kidding about the last one. I have been travelling and joking with people since I could walk. Logging hundreds of miles across Australia with mom at age 8 seemed natural to me. Crossing the Colorado Rockies’ on a solo mountain bike tour at 20 was a just great way to use up paid vacation. And why not spend 30 days circumnavigating the serene blue waters of Lake Tahoe on a 180-mile foot trail after a week in the desert at Burning Man?
Truth be told, I spend countless weeks in the deserts of Utah, Arizona, California and Nevada each year, and, these days, just as many consecutive days walking long distance trails. I sew my own gear, and I dream up designs for new gear. Through it all, I write. A stack of journals 10 feet high has accumulated in my basement.
“I’ll go back and publish all this one day, it will be interesting for my grand kids to read,” I always thought. But why not publish it now? So these days I take my smartphone and a stack of extra batteries with me so that I can keep you updated on this adventure that I call my life as it happens. I don’t have any grand kids, and I still carry the journal and pen for the personal stuff, but now I’ve got an outlet for the good stuff, and while adventure is not my job yet, I’m getting there. Enjoy!
