Search and rescue angels

About a week ago, I was stunned to see on the news that Budge Brown, founder of the Manteca waterslides, was missing on a plane flight from Nevada to his ranch in Tracy. Search and rescue units searched for several days before finding the wreckage of his plane in a rugged Sierra Canyon. My heart goes out to the Brown family and my prayers are with them.

Handicaps don’t get in way of enjoying the outdoors

Like most young adults, in my early 20s, I was pretty sure I was immortal and that I could hike anywhere with no problem. I would backpack into remote streams in search of the rare Golden Trout or the even more rare Paiute Trout.

Get wet & dirty

Oftentimes you hear old timers lamenting about how "the fishing ain't as good as it used to be," or the hunting, the gold panning, etc. It sort of reminds me of Will Rogers's observation that "everybody complains about the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it." Conservation of our outdoor resources, however, is a different story. You actually can make a difference. There are a host of organizations that do all sorts of projects improve our fishing, hunting and overall outdoor experience.

Making the most of life’s experiences

I won't waste your time with a top list of anecdotes since Monday was my birthday, or break into a 'Best of', because authentic existence has little to do with embellishment-laced highlights. A life is a non-stop series in reactions. So for those wondering what the life of an outdoor columnist is really like, here's what has highlighted my journey to 30.
