What is your favorite thing to do in the outdoors? (keep it rated PG, your mother might read this)

walking above timberline with big mountain vistas.

Where are you from? (if you've lived lots of places, list them)

Grew up in Cincy, then Michigan, Findlay OH, Japan, Alaska, now back to Cincy.

What do you do for a living?

I was a Federal labor investigator, now i am a consulting philosopher, life coach, and guru...

What is your favorite place to hike in the Cincinnati / Tri-State area?

tough call! Clifton Gorge is excellent, but not to forget Winton Woods, Shawnee Lookout, Fort Hill State preserve, and the Miami Univ woodland trails.

What is your craziest hiking memory (or "have you ever been chased by a bear")

Never been chased by a bear, I have twice fired warning shots at bears pretty close by.


hi all, I grew up in Cincy, but have only been back a couple of years since a long career in Alaska. I love being outdoors in the woods, fields, or desert country, and I enjoy hitting the trail with old or new friends.

    John...I posted on the calendar a meet up at Winton Woods Lake for this coming Sunday, but for some sort of technical reason with his computer Larry can't make me an organizer so that the event can be announced to the entire group. Could you take a look at the event on the calendar and then pick it up as the organizer so that the word goes out? You wouldn't need any further involvement. Let me know...Tom Loch

    Hi John! How is Jackson doing? I'm rooting for West Virginia. Wish I could be there tonight. I cannot make it to Hyde Park to watch the final four.
