Hard-pressed, I would say that I’m resourceful and pretty fearless, ever-so-occasionally selfish, and lucky quite often.
My irregular squad of adventurers is an optimistic, durable bunch — a likeable mixture of jokesters, rule breakers and occasional risk seekers like myself. Most of us are genuinely nice people! Even without much in the way of resources, prior experience, or common sense, we’ve enjoyed considerable amounts of time exploring the outdoors over the years.
I am an amateur at heart, jogging down dusty paths to try and catch the days last rays of light, beat-up gear bouncing against my chest and cursing yet another improvised-tripod disaster. Honestly, there’s nowhere I’d rather be. I take a few thousand photos and process a couple hundred each year. It’s evolved over time but those are my mainstays.
