During my adult life I have spent more nights outdoors than in.

I have served as an outdoor guide, educator, conservationist, researcher, crew leader and enthusiast from the bear-chomps of Alaska to the rock-falls of canyon country.

Currently working at a remote research station deep in the rain forest of Borneo studying primate ecology.

comment How to estimate the depth of a pool of water from a distance above?
Don't know how many times I've thrown a rock into a pool of unknown depth, watched it disappear and said, "Well it is deeper than that rock..." ;)
