Where on the Western Slope do you live? how long have you been there? Where did you come here from? How did you learn about the WSA group and why did you join? Do you plan to be an "Active" member or is WSA just one more web registration for you?

Was a flatlander from Nebraska 20 years ago and still in wonderment living in Colorado and so much yet to experience. Based out of Grand Junction. Learned about WSA from Doug E at during a hiking related activity.

How and about what time in life did you get started with outdoor recreation? What are a few of your favorite outdoor activities?

Enjoy hiking in the Colorado mountain peaks and Utah canyons primarily, ice climbing in February-March. Just got a hybrid mountain bike and combining some street biking with some of the easier off road trails. While do ackpack a couple times a year mostly enjoy the comforts and food selection of car camping. Do not own a raft but always enjoy opportunity to take a rafting trip with friends. First kayaking trip this year and made it halfway through the rapids on top of the water... Enjoy every day living in this fantastic playground central called Grand Junction and enjoy all outdoor activities that involve mountains and the desert canyons. Favorite activity is hiking the mountain peaks followed by Utah canyon rappeling.

What is the most challenging hike, bike, backpack, 14er, canyoneering, ski/snowshoe, river trip or other outing you've ever done? How or why was that; and, would you do that or something similar again?

Great idea for a midweek early evening! If ever needed can host a summer/fall event on patio.

Where is the most scenic place you have ever slept in a tent, walked or biked on a trail or travelled by paddle or oar down a river?

Weekend activities ideal for me. Still working an enjoyable 8-5 opportunity m-f!

After you've been on a few events with us, what kind of event might you be willing to to initiate and share with fellow WSA adventurers? Organize a hike? road or mtn bike ride? an evening on the river? a ski or snowshoe on Grand Mesa? Or... ?

Former downhill skiier converting to cross country and shoeshoeing, not enough snow miles yet not to still be amatuer! Make a special trip each year to lead first time 14nr hikers. Am avid reader, primarily Colorado and Civil War history, mixing in Stephen King writings.


Absolutely enjoy outdoor activities with this group!
