Sports and Recreation Lensography

Updated on April 6, 2013


Ultralight Flight to Throwing Tomahawks. My interests in different Sports and Recreations is diverse as most peoples are.

I am creating a list of the different Squidoo Lenses I have created that reflect those interests. I will attempt to making it entertaining as well as educational.

Squidoo Reflects My Love Of Flying

I have a great love of flying, especially ultralight aircraft. I began my flying experience flying an Apex Trike.

Soon after my solo, I began taking fixed wing ultralight lessons and have owned two different fixed wing ultralights.

Next I began taking lesson in a Powered Parachute and then a Powered Paraglider. Physically my knees and hips do not lend themselves well to the powered paraglider but I must admit that my all time favorite to fly is the "Powered Parachute.

These Squidoo Lenses reflect my love of flying!

Not all my desires but my desire to run a Marathon

I decided to create these lenses about running in Marathons - Not because of my expertiese but because of my desire.

As I learn and practice running a marathon, I share that journey through the creation of these lenses. These lenses were created as a reference for my own journey and I hope they help and encourage others along the way.


During the 1970's I became involved in Shooting Black Powder. A friend of mine and myself decided to go North to a Mountain Man rendezvous. Another friend gave me a Tomahawk to take and that is when I became involved with throwing tomahawks.

Soon after I started knife throwing and that has led to many many different forms of throwing. I hope to share many of those adventures through these lenses

Each year I wait patiently for the beginning of the Worlds Strongest Man Competition. I have followed this competition for many years. Year after year I am amazed by the speed and strength of these amazing athletes.

My favorite among the men is easily Mariusz Pudzianowski - While among the Woman it is easily Jill Mills.

I have worked out since the age of 15. During my early years I was privileged to meet a few of the greats of bodybuilding.

A foggy day at Muscle Beach California I turned and there was Hercules - Steve Reeves. The brief meeting set the stage for the rest of my life.

Over the years I was also privileged to meet Frank Zane and Dave Draper. I have learned much from both of these bodybuilding greats. I have created these lenses to reflect both the privilege, as well as the desire to be fit and healthy, each of these bodybuilding greats fueled within me.




I love swords and Armour. The sounds of combat as the metal strikes metal. Each year my wife and I attend a couple of fairs. I have created these lenses to showcase that love of steel.

I have just began this journey on Squidoo and see this section growing rapidly.
