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 have been here for 30 yrs from Lakewood Colorado where I grew up. This is the best place one could live, snow, rain, sun and sometimes way too much wind. However ya have to love it, once you get used to it???

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

Camped since I was a toddler, grew up fishing and being outdoors most of my life. Any one remember green canvas tents Coleman white gas stoves and cots??? Hoorah. Time changes us all, and getting older is getting better.

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?

My first back pack trip, my second kayak trip where my pal was teaching me and had me flip over and over until I understood how to get back on the kayak

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?

I love the Ouray, Silverton, Telluride area, there is nothing like it. Nothing like being out and star gazing, sleeping by the sound of a near by stream and meeting others. Best bk pk trip the Gunny Gorge where a few of us ha the best meal, wine and breakfast ever.

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 don't think I am ready to lead anyone, can barely lead my dog, or should I say deal with him when he is leading me. Hope someday to be able to do such. Thank you all WSA, you are the best!!1


Hello I was an avid outdoor person several years ago and than things changed. My Mom recently passed and I am wanting to get back in shape and eventually learn and go backpacking
