After a fulfilling career spanning over three decades consisting of hugging trees and putting out forest fires; given my love of travel, my keen instincts as a “observationist”, and a sometimes pretty weird sense of humor, I became a global adventure humor writer – and I have a business card that says so.
Think, a wannabe Tim Cahill with a little Dave Berry, and a much less accomplished Anthony Bourdain.
Why the name Sand Dollar Adventures?
Well, I am particularly fond of ocean-related activities such as sailing and SCUBA diving and these often seem to involve getting sand stuck in multiple body orifices and result in various adventures sometimes costing a bunch of dollars.
That – or it’s what came to my feeble brain after too many hours staring at the screen and possibly a few too many GNT’s (gin; no tonic).
As you will read, while I am often all wet, I can – and do – get in as much trouble on the ground; in the sky; yup…pretty much everywhere.
You won’t find “guidebook” information or a litany of lists here, unless you pick up on that information from yet another ill-implemented adventure I relate. There is plenty of that elsewhere on the web.
My john-ra (hey, I didn’t say I could spell, did I?!?) IF I am successful, is stuff told funnily, usually that happened to me. Or something, somewhere that just couldn’t go without my insight.
So until Outside Magazine or National Geographic calls me…here I am – and hopefully occasionally, so are you.
I am open to all manner of comments, especially if you wish to report any smiles or chuckles that might be attributed to what I wrote (in contrast to how I wrote).
