This page lists some of my favorite links that have nothing to do with topics on my other web pages. So you won't find any kayaking, hiking, USMC, fitness, etc. links in here. That doesn't leave much.

The above photo was taken on July 30, 2005 during a backpacking trip at the Laurel Forks Wilderness River Trail in Monongahela National Forest, West Virginia.
