LIVING THE DREAM

The Outdoor Life is a culture of men and women whose soul’s are restless and ache for a glimpse of sunshine & fresh air. I am the  average Joe living life one day at a time, waiting and planing for that next adventure. I am avid cyclist, kayaker, surfer, hiker, backpacker, camper, swimmer,equestrian, hunter, fisherman and, photographer … but it’s not about the activity, it’s about the adventures that I experience during these activities. For me, The Outdoor Life is not something I do, is something I live!

This website started a My Life on Two Wheels and I progressed into different activities, I felt it only right to give them the respect they deserve. I have been deep into the outdoor scene for more than 30 years – some professionally and some recreationally. I love being able to pass onto my follow outdoorsmen information about great companies, products and services that fit in an outdoor lifestyle. With over 2.6 million views on Google+, 850k video views and over 12k followers – I have a very attentive group of folks that trust I have put the products through rigorous paces and that my opinions are genuine and true to the experience – good or bad. If I have an unpleasant experience, I try work with the company directly. Not ever product is perfect, but it’s how the company stands behind their product that defines their character, and to me that their most valuable asset! I am a proactive blogger. I don’t just sit back and wait for the internet to find me, I seek them out and hunt them down through Communities, Groups and Forums – there I can reach an additional 1 million people with a single article.

Thank you Amanda for putting up with my obsessed need to be free in the outdoors! You are the love of my life and will always be my 1st obsession!

Every product posted here I have personally tested. Some are sent to me, but most are products that I felt could benefit my outdoors needs and goals. However, it’s not all about product reviews! You’ll find information on different places to go, rides I have ridden, rivers I have floated and the experiences at each. I’ll show you how to get things done, and usually on the cheap. You’ll watch as I succeed and fail , laugh and cry – but remember, at the end of the day it’s about the adventure and the smile you come a way with!

Photography with Action Cameras

The GoPro is a very tiny action “video” camera with a very tiny sensor and a very tiny lens. It will in no way compete with a $5,000 DSLR with an equally expensive $5,000 lens attached. It’s not even going to compete with a $500 DSLR/Lens Kit. It’s just not going to happen! And by understanding the limitations, will also set acceptable expectations.
