About me

Male, 74 (born August 1949) with the health, physical fitness, and desire to do just what I’m doing now. An avid runner and cyclist since 2003, with outrigger canoe paddling added in 2008. Background in forestry including eleven summers in fire suppression, five years of pine beetle management, and fifteen years of self-employment doing GPS traversing for forest licensees. Very self-reliant.

  1. Ron – what an incredible adventure you are having. It’s inspiring to read your travelogue, it takes guts, determination and more than a little “self reliance” to attempt what you are doing. I look forward to your next update. Bill Stephens
