Merrell Down & Dirty 2010


This website is an ongoing project to document my life goals and accomplishments as well as serving as a platform to write about my adventures. Much of this site is of a personal nature and is basically my little corner on the internet.

I consider myself to be an experience junkie, an adventure seeker, a person who believes that life is meant to be lived to it's fullest, as though each day was the last. This site is a reflection of that.

Below is a brief description of each of the major sections of this site, with links to each section found on the top of this site:

Life Goals & Accomplishments

This is my "Bucket List" or "Things to Do Before I Die List." On the left hand side of the page is a list of those items on my Bucket List that I have already completed. On the right hand side of the page are the remaining items, including a list of goals I wish to complete prior to the conclusion of this year. I also share links to resources to help you in creating your own list.

My Reading List

This section contains a list of books I have read cover to cover and is listed alphabetically by author within categories based upon genre. If a book hasn't been read cover to cover it will not be on this list. This section also lists the current book I am reading. I average between 20 and 40 books a year with an immediate goal of completing a 1000 books.

My Adventure Journal

This is my off site blog that discusses recent adventures I've embarked on and upcoming ones as well. What do I consider an adventure? Anything that takes me out of my comfort zone. Whether it is traveling to another city or country, competing in a martial arts tournament, jumping out of an airplane, entering into a race or mud run, or learning a new language.
