Gardening, canning, cooking, hunting, fishing, gathering, brewing- whatever supplies me and my family with the freshest, healthiest, best possible food and drink for free or cheap.
Also camping, backpacking, hiking, mountain biking, x-country skiing, traveling, nature observation, canoeing- whatever gets me outdoors and exercising.
In a nutshell, I like to do healthy outdoor things with friends and family that nourish mind, body, and soul.
Oh, and I like to watch the Philadelphia Eagles football.
brewing is no longer a hobby for me, but I have ventured off into fermented foods. Right now just sauerkraut and pickles but have plans to do kimchi and other fermented vegetables.
I also back pack, canoe, hike and am getting back into running after a 3 year hiatus. I have two dogs I walk and hike with daily. I have an 8 year old Great Dane in fantastic shape and an 11 year old "Mountain Dog" mix that will probably live forever.
2 kids, 2 dogs, 3 guinea pigs, a snake and now 4 kittens, not to mention a gold fish. Pretty much an all around zoo.
Oh, and I have a motorcycle that sits in the garage that I never ride. Used to be a daily commuter but now I have to haul kids and/or 50+ pounds of this or that around every day.
You're originally from Pa., right? What were you're favorite hiking/backpacking trails up here?
