    • About me: : When I am not earning money as a life coach and business coach, I am volunteering as a firefighter / EMT or running obstacle courses (Tough Mudders and Warrior Dashes). Ten-day Vipassana Courses, which I do twice each year, helps keep my head screwed on straight (balanced and equanimous). In addition to coaching, my spouse and I run a Farm with alpacas, sheep, donkeys, chickens, guineafowl and more! We are an active Workaway and HelpX site (which helps a lot with all the farm work). Plus my spouse and I own a bar / restaurant / night club in Concord NH. When I have time from all this other stuff, I focus on writing and already have a number of books published. Currently I am working on a book about the GR20, a book on Vipassana meditation and a book about good king henry.
    • Favorite Places: : Mount Mousilauke, the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and my own backyard (we live on 107 acres) top the list of my favorite outdoor places. My spouse and I have also spent many days and nights with the Mickey in Orlando, Florida - so any list of favorite places would not be complete without acknowledging the Mouse. Lastly, probably because I am an American history buff, Williamsburg, Virginia should be included on this list.
    • Outdoor Experience: : After solo-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 1987, I landed a job as a 4-season Outward Bound Instructor leading trips during all seasons in New England, canoeing courses in Florida and a series of courses in Oregon. I have paddled six 7-10 day trips to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota MN and the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in Maine over the years. Fast forward to August 2015 when a friend, Compass my intrepid Jack Russell and I finished the Long Trail (Compass even has an official end-to-ender patch and certificate!). I also hiked the GR20 (supposedly the toughest hiking trail in Europe) in September 2015.
