Born and raised in a dot of a town in West Texas left that scene in 2009 to work for an international volunteer organization (after I danced with the idea of joining the Air Force) to aid conservation related projects all over the Southwest. Since that time I have joined the National Park Service (Grand Canyon), the Forest Service (Lake Tahoe, S. AZ, S. UT, N. CA), the BLM, worked with various conservation corps and wilderness organizations. Basically I build and maintain trails, do foresty work (like thinning projects), large-scale invasive species removal, and sometimes even put up boundary fence-line for the Parks. Other times they give us a government rig, tell us to go to location A on X Forest Service road and we get to explore places that literally only a handful local hunters and pack stock go. As for as where I have lived in....*takes a deep breath*
Started with a good stint in Northern Arizona, then a few months in Utah, few months in Northern California, few months in Nevada, then back to Arizona for a minute, then from there a few months in Austin, TX, and most recently was living back in Northern California again. Now as of Sunday I will be leaving for Colorado to spend a few months working on the Dolores River. Where I go after that I'm not sure. Maybe the Pacific Crest again? Who knows..... Montana has got some charm....maybe stay in Colorado....Wherever life takes me, I'll keep you guys up to date.
So how did you end up a Vols fan?
Curious people are interesting people. I wonder why that is?
