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?

I moved from Niwot, Colorado to GJ 25 years ago. I learned about WSA in the newspaper. I plan to be an active member.

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

I started with outdoor recreation as a kid. We didn't have computers and smart phones back then, so it was quite easy to remain undistracted. I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, road biking.

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?

the most challenging hike I have completed is a one-day Grand Canyon hike down the South Kaibab Trail to the Colorado River, then back up with an added five miles out & back to Indian Gardens to see The first California Condor released in the canyon. The most challenging bike trip I have completed was riding the Colorado Trail self-support bikepacking style this past summer. The most challenging river trip I have taken was rafting the Grand Canyon on a three-week permit I waited 15 years for.

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?

South Island New Zealand, Colorado Trail, Grand Canyon

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... ?

I often organize bike rides for the Cyclepaths. I would be happy to do the same for WSA. I would also enjoy initiating hiking and road bike rides
