Introduction to the Outdoors
Growing up North of Boston, my dad was really into the outdoors. We spent a lot of time in New Hampshire and he actually climbed all the 4,000 footers in the Appalachian trail in New Hampshire. Yeah, it's funny, you know, you and I talked about this earlier, he kept one of those journals on all of his hikes up to the different 4,000 footers and who we went with, and what, what transpired. I actually haven't done all of them. I want to finish them all. But he did all of them, some even twice. The other family member that did all of them was our golden retriever who is in the book too. My dad actually got the 4,000 footer patch. So it's a lot of great memories.

If you're passionate about it, go for it. I mean, and if you can combine, I tell my kids this all the time, if you can combine something you truly love to do, and you're good at it as well. That's a magic formula, you know? And you know, life's too short not to do what you love.
