Recent Posts and Updates

I just updated my profile… have a look at the bottom.

Also recent:


49th State: Alaska–Holgate Arm/Holgate Glacier (Aug. 20, 2013)

Desert Tortoises… my concern for them is ongoing… as they are my totem animal.  Some great photos I took of them up close and personal.

Too much wildness???? Is it possible?

Art Work – sampling of my sketches and a price list.  I’m always looking for more work.  Funds earned with my art are used to supplement my gasoline budget.

In 2006, I was shopping for a wheelchair. By 2007, I had new knees, better health and by 2008 a kayak. In Aug 2013, I kayaked my 49th state, Alaska, at the Holgate Glacier and in May 2014, I kayaked Hawaii, my 50th state, to celebrate my 70th Birthday and the finale to the wonderful adventure of Kayaking America? Next up... Solo Hiking the Arizona Trail, 820 miles? Maybe. Still healing from shoulder and trying to decide.
