Some organizations I belong to and support.
United FWDA and
Our Sponsors and Premier Partners helping us save trails and keep our sports alive.
Besides land use activities and four-wheeling, as you'll see on this web site, I have a variety of things that keep me busy and happy, that include those activities listed here.
Outdoor photojouranlism; photography; writing; family and friends; music (especially around the camp fire); Stacie Albright (the better half); helping folks with meetings and conferences (facilitation); back country adventuring; hunting; fishing; and even a little hiking.

GOALS FOR BRC:
Continuously work on membership/recruiting through exposing BRC Strategic Goals to folks everywhere. Membership is the key to the future of a strong BRC. Furthermore, the educational process and battles that we fight in land use and public access are the foundation of what we are about. With my full time appointment to BRC in 2001, I will be focusing heavily on the Recreational Trails Program (RTP), nationwide, helping folks implement this trail improvement grant money, and marketing and promoting the BRC brand.
GOALS FOR CA4WDC:
I believe we must grow in membership and find new ideas to implement in the organization. We also must focus on developing future leaders of the Assoc. I work to find new ways to encourage folks to step up to the leadership plate and be a part of the Association. The RLTC training course is the best thing I offer to folks who want to get more involved. More here at http:/./www.rltc.biz
