As a husband and father of six kids, many of my interests revolve around family time. With a lot of extended family in the Western US, my kids are raised as road warriors- the older ones having averaged more than one 2800 mile round trip excursion for every year of their lives. As an Eagle Scout, in my time off I enjoy catch-and- release fly fishing and emergency preparedness.

My greatest extravagance (under $100):
Pocket knives. The philosophy of preparedness is deeply ingrained in me as an Eagle Scout. Knife construction and the types of metals that are used fascinate me. I have a small knife collection, and I am always carrying one.
