Wild Fact About Me I've been featured in National Geographic Traveler (guided an editor and photographer for this one) and Sunset Magazine.
My Philosophy Be good to other people, the environment and all life around you. Pay attention. Listen for what they don't say; avoid duality and always fight the good fight.
What Gives Me Hope Empowered Communities and Individuals that are dedicated to Environmental Stewardship, Education and Preservation.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Initiate population control measures... on humans.
What/who changed my life and why I hold backpacking and wilderness above all else.
Quotation "To live life is to take risks; to always be safe and secure is death." - Ed Abbey

"A venturesome minority will always be eager to set off on their own, and no obstacles should be placed in their path; let them take risks, for godsake, let them get lost, sunburnt, stranded, drowned, eaten by bears, buried alive under avalanches - that is the right and privilege of any free American." - Ed Abbey

"Wheresoever we may venture to go in all this good world, nature is ever found richer and more beautiful than she seems." -John Muir

"To me, a wilderness is where the flow of wildness is essentially uninterrupted by technology; without wilderness the world is a cage."
-David Brower

"The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth ... the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need -- if only we had the eyes to see."
-Edward Abbey

"Voyage, travel, and change of place impart vigor."

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."
-Robert Frost

"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page."
-Saint Augustine

"A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving."
-Lao Tzu

"If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears."
-Cesare Pavese

"Our task must be to free widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."
-Albert Einstein

"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers but as fountains of life."
-John Muir

"The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness."
-John Muir

"Not all who wander are lost."

"He who defines himself cannot know who he is."
-Tao Te Ching

"We must be the change we want to see in the world."
-Mohandas Gandhi

"Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man."
-Stewart Udall

"How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? the idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them? Every part of the Earth is sacred to my people, Every river is not just water but the blood of our ancestors, the land is sacred."
-Suquamish Chief Indian Tribe said in 1851

"Our only choice, whatever our dogma, is to protect the Earth. This is our common progress or our common ruin. There is nothing in between."
-Barbra Ward Special Advisor of the UN Development Program

"For every soft-drink bottle recycled, enough energy is conserved to run a television set for an hour and and a half."
-New York Times

"And we therefore yield to our neighbors, even our animal neighbors, the same right as ourselves, to inhabit the land."
-Sitting Bull

"To move forward, we must continue to stretch our imaginations. We will never have the financial resources comparable to those who exploit and pollute the environment for profit. So we must continue to renew our pioneering strategies for maximum leverage."
-Friends of the Earth

"We are running an uncontrolled experiment on the Earth, and it continues as we go about our daily lives."
-Dan Becker, Sierra Club

"Progress from now on has to mean something different."
-Robert Redford

"No issue is more compelling than the air we breathe, be it hot or cold, be it hawk or human."
-Jack Nicholson

"Where the quality of life goes down for the environment, the quality of life goes down for humans."
-George Holland

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."
-John Muir

"When warriors are leaders, then you will have war. We must raise leaders of peace."

"We must unite the religions of the world as the spiritual force strong enough to prevail in peace."

"It is no longer good enough to cry, "Peace." We must act peace, live peace, and march in peace in alliance with the people of the world."

-Leon Shenandoah, Tadodaho, Haudenosaunee Address to the General Assembly of the United Nations Delivered October 25, 1985

    Efficient use of the sun's energy is not necessarily a modern phenomena. Many centuries ago the Anasazi Indians of Southern Colorado found a way to capture the oblique rays of a winter sun. They simply built their stone houses against the south slope of canyon walls. The remains of their solar dwellings  are still with us today.
