About Me

I am an outdoor enthusiast. I have two children, 22 and 20 who were raised to also love the outdoors. I grew up on a lake in northern Michigan, waterskiing in summer and downhill skiing in winter. I’ve lived in California and Colorado and spent a lot of time hiking, backpacking and downhill skiing. I play golf, tennis and enjoy stand up paddle boarding. I have lived on a lake for most of my life. I have worked at a golf course to put myself through graduate school. I believe communing with nature and the outdoors is an excellent way to find yourself, to relax, and to discover a sense of serenity. I have hiked all over the US, and have enjoyed each state to its fullest. I hope you enjoy the outdoors as much as I do, and that this website will help you find the right equipment for your favorite activities.
