What’s going on here? Well, I’m a guy of no special significance: forty-something suburban dad, teacher, and scientist who does his best to squeeze in adventure and time outdoors as he can. My interests have changed over time from backpacking to rock climbing and caving to trail running with a bit of other things thrown in as well.
I’ve been blogging my adventures since 1995 (long before the term ‘blog’ even existed) largely as a way to keep a diary of my activities for future reference and partly as a way to give back to the then-growing community of people looking for information on specific areas and activities out there. Much to my surprise, people started reading my stuff and I’d get occasional grateful (and sometimes angry) responses from people from far and wide.
My older stuff (pre-2010) was coded in old-school html from the Precambrian, but I’ve been on WordPress since then and have been working on moving over some of my more interesting early adventures here off and on.
So, welcome. Happy adventuring!
