Born and raised in Southeast Louisiana, my enthusiasm for the outdoors was cultivated at a young age by frequent hunting and fishing trips with my father and his father. It wasn't until I became actively involved with my son's Boy Scout Troop that I bloomed into a full blown outdoors fanatic! Now I spend the majority of my day dreaming of the next hike or canoe trip. My son Christian, a.k.a. "Rooster", and I take every opportunity to test our limits and enjoy an adventure together. Now that I reside in up state Louisiana, every three day weekend or holiday, I find myself planning a spur of the moment adventure into the Arkansas Ozarks.
This site will focus on sharing my passion and hopefully cultivating an interest in others. I hope to detail the highs and lows, capture the essence of the hike in pictures, and strive to give a little extra background to my adventures. I encourage everyone to live outside of their "comfort" zone and experience the thrill of accomplishment when becoming totally self reliant in out of the way destinations and situations. After all, I firmly believe that we all should strive to find our limitations and learn how to become reliant upon our own skills and talents rather than depend on others.
