Introduction Originally from the great Cheesehead state I am a fairly experienced traveler having visited 113 countries on the six inhabited continents. Of the places I have viisited so far, Argentina, Australia, South Africa and Thailand have been my most favorite. I am retired after 31 years as a wildlife biologist with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and now live on the sun-baked west coast of Florida. I enjoy kayaking, hiking, swimming, bicycling, birdwatching, nature observation and interpretation, writing , reading voraciously, art (the Musee d'Orsay in Paris is the best anywhere!), theater performances, movies, watching minor league baseball, listening to Jimmy Buffett music and going to his concerts.
Interests Im a retired US Fish and Wildlife Service wildlife biologist now living under a palm tree on Florida's sun-baked west coast.
Favorite Music There's Jimmy Buffett and then there are a bunch of other people and groups whose names I have forgotten.
Favorite Books My favorite books are those I have authored ! - "Somewhere South of Miami", "Continental Drifting", "Sojourn to South Africa" "Slices of America's Pie" and "Minor League Heckler"

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts." Mark Twain
