    Since I am no longer in the left seat on the Hawker nor Citation jet aircraft my wife, Mike, and I have dedicated ourselves to helping others achieve better health and fitness. Following our own words of advice and using the all natural nutritional supplements has enabled me this year to take on backpacking, canoeing and portaging up to 3 miles with 70 lb packs or canoes in the BWCA (Boundary Waters Canoe Area) on the northern Minnesota / Canadian border as well as travel to Montana for some spring creek, lake and Bighorn River fly fishing for trout. Anyone fit enough or want guidance to get fit enough to join me on a repeat of either or both trips in 2014???!!! The pictures tell the story.

    Thanks again for the life long rememberable trip. From fishing to campfire stories I really had a blast. Let us know how the Pecan-Walleye recipe turns out. Have a great summer and safe paddling!
