Welcome to Wilderness Monster!

Welcome to my web site. As you peruse the pages here, you will find several different types of content. The main thrust of the site is wilderness adventures which will include backpacking, canoeing, rock climbing, caving and any other outdoor activity that interests me. But also within the pages, you will find other interests such as mission trips with TEAMS for Medical Missions, my son's wedding and pages dedicated to Troop and Venture Crew 4, Canton, Ohio.

I will continue to add to this site. My hope is that it will become a resource of information on trip planning and outfitting. I know that there were many years that I did not have trips to enjoy. It was only after I decided that I could plan and lead expeditions that others and I have had opportunities in the outdoors. Please use the link below to give me comments on the material, to make suggestions for improvement and to let me know of anything that you believe is incorrect.

We hope you enjoy the site!
