Extended Offer

Since I love the outdoors and do one to two backwoods trips a year, I thought it would be fitting to offer the following service. If you manufacture gear for the great outdoors and are looking for someone to test a product that you manufacture, I may be able to help. Please contact me using one of my contact forms at Northern Branches. I am well versed in GPS’s, mapping software, solid modeling (currently a design engineer), wood canoe/kayak building, and digital photography. My plans for a spring ’08 trip into the Boundary Waters are underway. The route will be a 35 to 50 mile loop probably in the northeast corner of the park. Again, contact me via Northern Branches with any questions.

Favorite Vacation Spot

A Photo Contest Entry

Forever indelibly marked.

This was my second trip to Lake Superior Provincial Park about 99 miles northwest of Sault Ste. Marie Ontario. The lake is Fife Lake. The trip was taken in the fall of 94. My brother is catching a brook trout while I was on the shore waiting for the moose to come out into the little bay to the north of us. He is looking in that direction, listening to the crashing sounds as they make there way through the woods.

Google Maps Find the formation that looks like Mickey Mouse's head at the tip of the lake. The photo was taken in the left bay just north of the little island. I was on the left shore across from the peninsula that divides the two bays. The trees in the background of the photo are located at the end of that peninsula.

These trips were special they can never be repeated you see I lost my brother to lung cancer two and a half years ago at the age of 44. Just memories now.

Go here - An Island Life - to vote and see the other contestants. You can vote once a day starting May 18, 19, and 20th 2007
