I enjoy spending time with my wife, daughter and our dogs. I like to spend my free-time running with the dogs, home improvement, going to the gym, backpacking/hiking, and grilling. I try to be a "budget traveler" in the sense that I look for the best possible deal without sacrificing comfort and enjoyment. Some of my favorite trips are a weekend in downtown Chicago, exploring Alaska, relaxing in the Dominican Republic, camping in the National Parks out west, and playing around Hawaii.
I am addicted to traveling and probably spend as much time planning/dreaming/researching my trips as I do actually traveling. Like most others on this website, I'm passionate about the trips I've been on and the ones I'm looking forward to.
