Come join us in Reno!

I have been honored by having been asked to speak at this upcomming winter safety event in Reno.  If you are in the area this is a good way to get out and meet our kind of people.  What I mean by our kind of people is the type to grab oppertunity and go enjoy the wonderful resources that we have available in this country.  All are invited and I encourage you to support the Sierra Club in your area, and the conservation efforts that they make to keep our public lands open, clean, well managed and available for all of us to enjoy.  If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem!
