About Me I love the outdoors and live a simple lifestyle. I'm earthy and fun, slightly irreverent, but sensitive and aware of others' feelings.

I went trekking in the Himalayas in April 2006, and have included photos from that trip. I made it to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar, over 18,000 feet.

Wild Fact About Me I once worked with bears in Yosemite.
My Philosophy Believe in yourself and the goodness in others.
What Gives Me Hope I believe nature will come out the winner in the end.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Stop clearcutting, stop oil drilling in the arctic, charge higher deposits for cans & bottles and make certain all packaging and containers are recyclable/reusable. I would promote alternative energy, legalize marijuana, and outlaw nicotine. I'd also ban cell phone use in moving vehicles and inside public places. Last, but not least, I would put pressure on China to free Tibet.
What/who changed my life and why John Muir and Edward Abbey changed my life by showing me the value and appreciation of nature.
