I am from south Florida. I grew up in a real Florida lifestyle and learned to love the water from a young age. You'll never find me living far from the ocean. I have also traveled extensively and have had oppurtunities to do a lot of hiking in Europe. I have also hiked for a time on the A.T. and one day plan on thru-hiking it. I love the mountains almost as much as the ocean. Most of the time you can catch me fishing, oystering, boating, hiking, or just relaxing by the sea. I am planning a summer canoe trip from my hometown of Pine Island, FL to Key West, solo via the Everglades.
