For years worked as a Park Ranger for the National Park Service. All the walking, hiking, climbing, &c kept the weight off. Then I started a desk job that broadened my horizons as well as my waist line. Now leading a Healthy Parks Healthy People initiative at Hot Springs National Park I need to practice what I am teaching the public.
In January 2013, Kathy and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We have two grown daughters. To celebrate we will travel to England, Wales and Ireland - map in hand, walking through neighborhoods, watching people, experiencing different cultures, no group tour herding. While there we will visit our daughter who is attending college in Aberystwith, Wales.
Improve my holistic health - mind, body and spirit. Improve my endurance, flexibility, HDL; lose weight, BP point, LDL. Stop smoking!
Figuring it out - start slow and build.
Originally from southern NJ, attended Stockton State in NJ, started working for the NPS. Have worked at multiple parks from NY to NM.
Married to Kathy almost 30 years, and we have two daughters one born in TX, the other NM.
Enjoy reading, writing, soaking in a hot tub, hiking, walking, watching and meeting people, experiencing different cultures, and traveling. Enjoy both the simple and wild side of life.
