I'm a pretty simple guy, who seeks adventure when he travels. Living in western NY, a place with cold snowy winters, I often seek destinations with a warmer climate. My job is not one which provides frequent opportunities for business-related travel, but I take the chance when I get it. Having been a camper from a young age, I love the great outdoors. The Adirondack mountains of NY state have always been, and will always be, very dear to me. I enjoy meeting people from all around the world when I travel, and thanks to technology, maintain contact with a number of those I've met while on vacation. Mark Twain, who adored traveling, remains a personal hero; I find truth, comfort in poignancy in his words, “travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”
