I like to think of myself as a full-time traveller. I retired in 2006 at age 53 with a dream to see the world. Now eleven years and 89 countries (and counting) into the adventure, I am living that dream. Traveling for 6 or more months per year can be demanding and I go home for a few months each summer to relax and organize my life. It is my vacation and a chance to explore North America.
My passions are walking, sea kayaking and diving – they allow me to have intimate experiences exploring almost anywhere. Hopefully this website will give you some ideas of places to go and things to do.
In August 2017, I started an e-book titled “Hiking and Climbing in the West Kootenay”. It is a huge project and this section (in the Hiking page) will be very much a work in progress for the next several months. Maps will be added. Please have patience. Do not use for information until this warning is removed.
The Ideas page is about my many random thoughts.
