I have always loved outdoor adventures and in the last 3 years I've been going after the "bucket list." I've enjoyed thru-hiking the Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Superior Hiking trails; solo kayaking the whole Mississippi, St. Croix, and Namekogan Rivers; bicycling across America from Pacific to Atlantic, around Lake Superior, and along the Mississippi river trail from Lake Itasca, MN to Venice, LA. and many other smaller adventures. I'm looking forward to through hiking the Continental Divide Trail this year.
