    Favorite vacation spot:

    Yosemite National Park, the North Shore of Hawaii or pretty much anywhere in Ghana. Ghana is such a beautiful country. And as a lover of the outdoors, camping with breath taking views in the Sierra Nevada’s or on the beaches in Hawaii is hard to beat.

    “Our greatest satisfaction in life comes in our trying and not in the results. “

    Seattle Super Sonics
