Growing up in the cities, I wasn't exposed much to the Minnesota outdoors. It wasn't until I came to Morris, Minnesota where I met many outdoor enthusiasts! The associate pastor of my local church even came up with an apostolic ministry called, Outfitters for Adventure, that plants churches through relationshop building!

The closest outdoor sport I participated growing-up was "Archery", which was one of the fun classes I had an opportunity to take while attending Battle Creek Middle School in St. Paul. I really enjoyed this class, which was probably a rare opportunity!


I've learned to appreciate Minnesota winters by going sledding, skiing, ice skating, snow boarding, and willing to try ice fishing someday!

    "snowmobile hillclimb "

    This past weekend (Feb 2005), I went with a couple of youth to checkout the snowmobile race on the "2 Foot Ice Thick" Lake Minnewaska in Glenwood's annual "Winterama".

    {Photo Gallery}

    Cory and Mike watching the snowmobile race

    Cory and Mike check out the parked snowmobiles

    Secound-half of the snowmobile race, which can get very loud when you stay long enough!

    Cory takes one of 3 shots in the ice golf (see World Ice Golf Championship in Greenland) game along the Glenwood beach side of Lake Minnewaska

    Minow Eating Contest-whoever eats the most in 30 sec wins!

    Cory, Mike, and I head to my vehicle parked amongst others on the "thick" ice! It was my first time actually driving on ice, which I was a little scared. Mike told me the ice is 2 feet deep, which gave me the confidence to do this. I would later found out that I should always leave my windows open in case my car fall through-especially my vehicle having electric powered windows (other driving tips)! I would also have have car problems later that evening after driving around Morris.

    During the summer, I've had rare opportunities to go fishing, water skiing, camping, and hikking (see Summer 03'Hikiing Trip!

    As I've grown in my personal relationship with God, I've learn to grow in appreciation and a fascination of His creation. Especially here in the United States, where the terrain is probably the most diverse than any nation in this planet!


    I went "real" camping for the first time ever in 2003! I slept in a tent before-first time as a little kid in the backyard with a neighbor. Here is my story=> Camping Trip of 2003

  • Alexandria Minnesota Easy To Get To, Hard To Leave By Wayne Ek from classicbass.com

  • "Alexandria is both a popular destination for the avid angler as well as a wonderful family vacation destination.
    This is truly one of those rare locations where an avid angler can take the family on vacation, fish every day and not feel guilty. The area has something for everyone. For the shopper there is a charming downtown area, with antique shops, boutiques, wine bars and specialty stores. There are casual and formal dining establishments scattered throughout the area. Kids of all ages will enjoy the indoor water park at Arrowwood Resort. For the golfer, there are 13 courses in the area. The lakes area boasts 3 museums, a winery and fun festivals every weekend. Carlos State Park, on the north end of Lake Carlos, has beautiful camping facilities and a great trail system for day hiking or horseback riding.
    The walleye may be Minnesota’s state fish, but it is this area’s spectacular bass fishing, both for largemouth and smallmouth, that will make every bass angler stand-up and take notice. Some would say… arguably the best bass fishing in the upper Midwest....

Talk about how the disciples left everything, including their fishing boats, to follow Jesus. Ask the children if they thought that was easy or hard (there is no right or wrong answer to this question. It simply gives you the chance to see where the children are in their understanding of following Christ)."

    -Deer Hunting


    "As the deer panteth for the water
    So my soul longeth after Thee
    You alone are my heart's desire
    And I long to worship Thee"
    -lyrics from gospel christian songs free mp3

    I was able to take this "rare" picture out in the backyard of my parent's home in St. Paul. I would read in the Distict 1 Newspaper that many deers has been running around the area, which they opened it to bow-hunting to help decrease the deer population in this area.

  • Skateboarder tackled by deer during downhill event in Colorado By: Pete Thomas, GrindTV.com Monday, October 1, 2012 11:13am PDT

  • "The Buffalo Bill Downhill is a treacherous skateboarding race in its third year in Golden, Colorado, and while buffaloes are not considered among the obstacles as skaters charge down a steep mountain road at break-neck speeds, deer ought to be. The accompanying footage shows competitor Ryan Vitale racing downhill at 45 mph before being tackled by a deer charging across the road.

    "The incident occurred just as Vitale and his fellow competitors were approaching the most daunting feature on the course, a 180-degree turn called "The Gooch." Miraculously, Vitale was uninjured (save for scrapes and bruises) and the deer seemed OK. It's the same deer that appears at the end of the video, after the switchback turn. "I was really glad to see both the deer and Ryan were okay," says videographer Mike Paproski, who shot the footage. Paproski was trying to keep up with his 13-year-old son, Greg, who's already one of the top downhill racers in the world, when the deer jumped in front of his group. The annual Buffalo Bill Downhill race has become one of the more prestigious in skating circles. It draws about 200 people each year and racers reach speeds of up to 50 mph. Because several of the hairpin turns send competitors skidding and sliding into the hay bales, the more endearing name for this event is the Buffalo Bill Downhill Blood Spill. "
