Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.

Information: I joined the Sierra Club in 1972 while I was a student at UCLA and was initially very active leading bike rides, hikes, and camping and backpacking trips in the Angeles NF and the Sierras.

I became active in the Transportation Committee for the Sierra Club in the late 1980's when I noticed a lack of bike friendly roads in Central Florida. My first successes took at least 5 years but eventually I changed the mindset of local government leaders to include either wide outer lanes or bike lanes on most new arterial and collector roads and build a multicounty bike trail system.

Since then, I have served on several planning boards and pressed to improve bus service and build light, high speed, and commuter rail lines in Central Florida.

When I am not working transportation issues, I still love hiking, biking, canoeing and other outdoor activities.

I often go with my wife Carolyn, mother-in-law Lois, and my dogs Kupa and Bentley to our vacation house in the NE Georgia mountains in Skylake which has a beautiful waterfall, lots of hiking trails, and several lakes.
