So you like adventure too? Awesome! Welcome to my site, the base camp of my adventures captured with word, photos, and video. Now that we are friends, I should tell you a bit about myself and what you should expect to gain from my blogs, photos, feature videos and weekly report videos.
As a young boy, I adventured with my parents and siblings by camping and fishing across Ohio, and traveling to other states to explore natural places. My father was an avid reader of outdoors magazines and newspapers. He also kept a few notes on our fishing success and mother always had her trusty old flash bulb camera in hand while on our travels. From this my curiosity and enthusiasm to document my travels grew. I became a father in 1990 and I started and maintained a journal of my young family as the adventures continued. In 2001, my first outdoors story was published on a website of a small publication. Following that, I landed a weekly outdoors column in a local, weekly newspaper. Then a local, daily newspaper was in need of an outdoors columnist and I landed that gig. A few years later, my journalistic skills grew and soon my work appeared in various outdoors and travel magazines, on websites of major media outlets such as ESPN Outdoors, and I became a weekly blogger for Bass Pro Shops covering hiking, camping, and adventure travel.
With print media becoming less popular with our society, I’ve turned my focus to the electronic format including social media. The subjects that I write and video about will now be in your hands within a click of mouse or a swipe of finger on your mobile device. Those subjects are: travel documentaries and destination reviews, interviews with experts in various outdoors fields such as wildlife and wild lands management, news and current events that impact the environment and natural resources, gear reviews, tips to help you adventure more no matter what your physical abilities are, and a steady dose of fun entertainment. My intent for my blog and social media pages and channels is to become a place where you can connect and interact, and follow along to learn and be entertained. Please subscribe to my social media sources by following the links below.
I hope my Adventures Found website and supporting social media sources encourage you to get out and find adventures of your own. And when you do, I would enjoy hearing about it.
See you out there!
