Living in the middle of the flat Midwest surrounded by farms, I'm not exactly close to many places that allow me to be immersed in nature. But by pure willingness to adventure, I find a way! I absolutely love to hike and it seems when I get the opportunity to hike in the mountains, I tend to be more ambitious than my body can handle. But in the end, it's always worth it! Recently, in order to help explore more portions of the Midwest, my wife and I added a pair of beautiful kayaks to our adventure gear. We have stuff planned for them for years to come!
