Introduction and trial run

This is my first post to my new blog. Like it says, this will be my random thoughts and wonderings. I will post about my adventures and misadventures. I'll try to understand and share what they mean to me and what I've learned.

I live in northeastern USA and do most anything outdoors. I run, hike, camp, canoe, hunt and photograph. I help out with the local Boy Scout troop and lead a Venture Crew. Venturing is a division of Boy Scouts that is for the older youth, 14-21 and is co-ed. We have a high adventure crew who camps, rafts, and some of us have learned scuba diving. Our next trip is a cruise to the western Carribean where we will dive at Cozumel. I will have lots to say about that. It is next week, January 31 to February 5.

I am self employed as a contractor. I like old cars, especially Mustangs, and am working on a '52 Ford pickup truck. You can see that the truck is in the early stages. I actually had 2 cabs that had different bad parts. I cut them apart and welded the parts back together again.
My outdoor passion is running; trail running. I have run several 100 mile runs. I have big goals for this year and more beyond. I am fortunate to live in a rural area that has hundreds of miles of trails available to me. You WILL hear more about that.
Stop in and see what I'm up to.
