Outdoor Adventuring

As an outdoor educator, I led (and am still available to lead through GO-Adventures in the Washington, DC area) adventure and wilderness skills trips and workshops, including backpacking, rock climbing, spelunking/caving, and primitive skills. I teach ecology, carving, fire-making, survival, aidless navigation, and comfort and familiarity with the outdoors.

I also love to go on wilderness adventures, with friends, family, colleagues, and school groups!

Some of the places I’ve been and adventures I’ve had the privilege to be on:

Lowering a canoe over Solea Falls, Drysdale River, Kimberly, Western Australia

  • The wilds of the Washington, DC region which are surprisingly beautiful: Assateague National Seashore, Catoctin Mountain Park, Mount Sugarloaf, George Washington National Forest, and Patapsco Valley State Park, to name a few favorites.
  • The Kimberly region of Western Australia on a 9 week canoeing and backpacking expedition (2004)
  • The Appalachian Trail through Maine and New Hampshire (2006)
  • The Florida Everglades (many many times)
  • The Firth River in Canada’s Ivvavik National Park (2009)
  • Oregon’s Rogue River National Forest (2008)
  • Idaho’s Snake and Middle Fork Salmon Rivers
  • Backpacking in Pisgah National Forest, NC (2001 and as often as possible since)
