I  am passionate about the outdoors and enjoy writing about what I love. I love camping, fishing, sailing, and really anything else that gets me out into the fresh air. I began this blog as I wanted to write about what interests me, whether that’s RVs or my latest fishing trip, you’ll find it all on this blog.

You can catch up with me on Facebook and Pinterest.

In 2018 I published a book on survival, under the pseudonym George McDug.

If you’re looking to find out more about RVs, Sailing, Fishing, or Skiing, then we hope you find exactly what you’re looking for.

In addition to working on this blog, I work as a Cyber Security Analyst.

I  am a survival expert with over 20 years of experience in some of the harshest conditions known to man.  I started my career in 1990 and started teaching survival in 2000, with over 100 successful courses under my belt.

I have instructed park rangers across several US national parks in all the skills they need to survive in a range of conditions, from blistering heat to freezing temperatures. 

I currently live in Idaho with my wife and two kids.
