I've spent most of my life in law enforcement and public safety and I love everything outdoors. I love my family and spending time together. We have animals in our family, too, and I believe that animals are a blessing to mankind. In my life I try to focus on the things that matter most, and believing that everything else will fall in to place.

Here at Hubpages my hope and intent is to write compelling articles about those things which interest me and which might be interesing or useful to you. As you'll see, I write about anything and everything that sparks an interest in me; that's what keeps it interesting for me and allows me to continue writing. For me, the fuel that drives me to write is the same thing that drives us to surf the web and search for information.... a continual quest to learn and do more.

Specifically, however, my primary interest would have to be the great outdoors and all of the sports and activities that go with it; things like camping, hiking, backpacking and fishing. My family and I spend weeks each year camping and backpacking in the Rockies and it's the highlight of my year; there just isn't anything that compares to spending time outdoors in such a magnificant place with your family and friends. If you visit my Squidoo Lensmaster page (see the link below) you'll see a variety of articles on those topics and a lot more. I'm planning to start writing more here on hubpages.


I would appreciate a comment if you enjoyed reading any of my hubs, or have a question or suggestion for me. Thanks.
