What did you want to be when you grew up

While I was growing up adults and teachers asked me what I wanted to do when I grew up.  What I really wanted to do was Anthropology, the study of ancient civilizations.

My other choices were to do something with the outdoors, or to create something, such as a scientist.

When I finished high school I took a job at a welding shop, which was not even something I had considered.

In the 1990s I looked into opening some kind of outdoor gear review magazine.  But the magazine was cost prohibitive.  The companies that would print the magazines wanted a couple of hundred thousand dollars up front, and that was even before I found anyone that would carry the magazines.

From the mid 1990s to the mid 2000s, I was waiting for something to come along on the internet that would help me build a website.  There was basic HTML sites, but I wanted something that was dynamic and able to handle steady updates.

In early 2006 I opened the forum.  Later that same year I opened the blog but in a different format then what we see today.

Between the forum and the blog, I have achieved something I have wanted to do since I was a kid.  I get to go play in the woods, then write about it.

Creating content on youtube, the forum and the blog is like a scientist creating something.  I do my research, do my observations, then write about my opinion on the research and observations.

The internet has given me the ability to express myself like a real-life job would never have.
