I grew up in the dawn of when kids went from spending their days outside to being cooped up inside playing video games. But I also grew up with key people around me who encouraged me to get outside, explore the outdoors and to find enjoyment in the toil of physical expression. So I run, hike, backpack, climb, ski and whatever else I can outdoors.
My hope is to be able to share my passion for the outdoors, fitness and outdoor culture with as many people as I can and to encourage people to do the same. The creation of this world was a gift to us all, as is the gift of waking up every morning with the breath of life.
So that’s where the name, Pro Active Outside, comes from. Take charge of your life, be active, and as much as possible, do these things outside.
How to use the site
This is a blog, and it has a lot of personal writing that I like to share. But it is also a resource. Under the categories, you’ll see trip reports, which will show you information on great places to go, how to get there and what to expect. Under videos, you’ll see helpful or entertaining videos I’ve found. Under fitness, you’ll see items dealing specifically with fitness issues; the other categories are similar to their respective subject matters.
Explore the site, find topics you like, and feel free to comment, suggest topics or ask questions.
