SPRING/SUMMER: Tell us about your outdoor life: what kinds of things do you like to get out and do during the Spring & Summer?

The nesting cranes at Devils Lake are mystical, prehistoric. April, May-ish. Caving is cool in the Winter, x/c ski, downhill ski. Scuba in warm water. Native American sites. The Lakota SunDance ceremony in early July is not-to-be-missed.

FALL/WINTER: Tell us about your outdoor life: what kinds of things do you like to get out and do during the fall and winter?

Fall is good climbing season, always open to new partners. Tossing the football around. Starved Rock is wonderful too.

Tell us about yourself if you feel like sharing:

I play the Native American flute, which I always bring along. And a Drum. Always nice to jam casual with others.I've got a really good underwater camera. Nice, thoughtful & cheerful people help the experience. A sense of wonder.

EXPERTISE: Do you have any guide, training, teaching or other expertise in outdoor activites (e.g. rafting guide or ski instructor)?

Taught Rock climbing. Did some teaching of canoeing. Awesome photographer.


I want to do more than bike and rock climb, and I like people. I used to backpack, and still have all the gear, but once I got addicted to climbing 25 years ago....
