Who Am I?

I’m just some guy that likes to share his observations, stories and pictures with friends, ones I know and ones I don’t.  So in that positive spirit, here’s hoping you find something to tickle your fancy.  Everything I have written here is true- it’s just not necessarily all factual.  There is a difference.

I’ve criss-crossed this country many times, and have never failed to find amusing, interesting, heartbreaking and illuminating experiences along the way.  Every place has a story and a history.

At the moment, I may be located in the midst of a major city, but my heart is somewhere far, far away from all these cars, bus stops, jobs and other abominations.  Not that the city as a concept doesn’t have a purpose- largely to serve as a counterpoint and reminder as to why we need wilderness and open space to keep us sane, even if we never set foot in it.  I love it for what it is, and I love wilderness for what it is- the world as it ought to be, and something to aspire to.
