Just being there. The outdoors is my home, my church, my happy place. Sportwise, I enjoy hiking, camping, backpacking, canoeing, rafting, caving, and mountaineering.
Originally from Southern Indiana near Louisville. I've lived in Evansville, IN; Dallas, TX; Seattle, WA and Louisville.
I'm an outdoor guide.
Remote areas of Harrison Crawford State Forest in Southern Indiana. I began backpacking when I was 11 and growing up spent a lot of time in my teenage years exploring and learning there so it is a special place for me.
I've never been chased by a bear but have had several encounters with them, mostly comical, along the trail in Tennessee, New Mexico, Minnesota, Wyoming, and California.
My name is Douglas and I've spent my entire life in the outdoors-camping, hiking, backpacking, canoeing, rafting, and alpine climbing primarily. I joined this group to meet other interesting and like-minded folks who enjoy the outdoors.
