About Me I go by Ric and have lived most of my adult life in sunny Florida but I love the Pacific Northwest and areas of Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. My wife and I enjoy day hiking and 3/4 day backpacking adventures. Anytime we take a vacation it's usually to a National Park in the areas I mentioned above. We love the wilderness.
