My Locale Arkansas Ozarks
About Me Eagle Scout. I spent 9 summers on Camp Orr Adventure Base staff, BSA, Buffalo National River. I love my home in the Ozarks, but constantly wish for the grandeur that I see in the West, or in Europe. I'm the father of one boy, born for the trail. I blog a little about my experiences out there. I'm working on a mini-seminar to do with the local Boy Scout troops. Something like "Introduction to Lightweight Backpacking". I was also approached recently for help with bridge building on the Ozark Highlands Trail. We'll have to see about that though.
