*6pm Monday, December 17th, 2012 (six days before the end) ->

I have paddled in the biolumenescent waters of Tomales Bay; hiked among the buttterfly swarms in Santa Cruz; dove into crystal clear rivers feeding the Klammath, climbed to the top of Lover's Leap under shooting stars, relaxed in Sierra Nevada's natural hot springs to a rising full moon on a whitewater river bank, watched Thule Elk rut at Point Reyes; elephant seals pound at Ano Nuevo, blue whales migrate past Chimney Rock.

I have ice skated on Lake Tahoe ponds, built a snow cave next to my parked car, and swam with giant manta rays. I have spelunked the caves near the King's River and ziplined Moaning Caverns. I have taken my snowboard into Huckleberry and up Pyramid. And spent many nights in lighthouses as well as at a historic "haunted" lifeboat station. I learned to surf at a secret town, and carried my daughter to camp at the base of a waterfall. I have seen three feet long Salmon try to bash their way up Lumsden Falls. And I have taken my raft into a whitewater tunnel.

I have paddled out under the Golden Gate Bridge many times and watched The City lights slowly turn on from Kirby Cove or from the top of Angel Island.

At eight years old, Kasey biked from San Francisco along the waterfront to Sausalito and took the ferry back to Fisherman's Wharf. I have snowshoed to a desolate mountain top and wished upon the first satellites while at an old fire lookout. I will soon paddle up to a ghost town in the bay just past albino owls and a old train trestle, draw bridge.

I have taught Kasey how to surf at a secret town and tidepool at the base of a waterfall that empties into the Pacific Ocean. All this I have done and was able to sip coffee at a nearby coffee house the next morning... If you thought you had to be Bear Gyllis to do these things you ought know that I now have taken my 11 year old daughter to do most of these amazing things.

If any of these things interest you, please come and let’s talk. I would like to help you get everything ready so that you will have an amazing and fun time. Plan your own adventures.

I have been adventuring in Northern California since 1992 and have followed the weather, wind, tides, constellations and natural phenomena to my advantage. In 1992 it was much different. Today,modern technology and social networking allows you to master in minutes what took me decades to figure out.

Open discussion is VERY welcome. Please join us. This will be super informal gathering.

    Kids are not excluded but this will be adult oriented and most kids get bored not excited. It is also at a local brewery.
