Welcome to my outdoor adventure page!

As you can probably tell, I enjoy the outdoors. I love hiking, backpacking, sports, and climbing Colorado 14ers (14,000ft peaks). My good friend Jason Miller, my son Eric, his friend Agust and I are attempting to climb all 54 14ers. Recently joining us in this endeavor, is Jason's son Daniel!

Next up on the adventure list.

Summer 2012 climb is in the planning stages. Will we head back to the very familiar Sawatch Range? Maybe target a couple of 14ers in the Front Range? Jason and his son Daniel now live in Colorado, so we have a very nice base camp now! Last year, Daniel conquered his first 14er and he is ready for more!!!

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you like sunshine flows into the trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." ~ John Muir

"Climbing mountains is hard. You often encounter adversity. But learning to deal with adversity high on the side of a mountain can help people in their everyday lives. It teaches patience, empathy, respect. And gives us great contrast with our everyday, often non-adventurous lives." -- Peter Whittaker
