Dear fellow outdoorsman,

I’m writing to you today, to express to you what value the world around us truly gives on a daily basis. For me I truly started to notice it at a young as I found myself outside and in the “wild” at any given moment. I was lured in by the beauty and the pureness that could be found just in the backyard. That’s where the outdoorsman roots start. I started to see what the environment could do for me, yes that may sound selfish, but there’s a wide range of possibilities here. I believe the biggest thing, it has given me are the memories that are shared. The places, and the experiences in these “wild” places are what drive you back every time. Looking back at the short time I’ve been allowed on this earth, so much of the joy inside me and the fullness that is felt comes from these places or the things that reside in them. Not having that growing up or being able to experience something like that at all would leave a void in walk through life. That why there needs to be a respect for our environment, but not only that, strive to understand it and help it grow to what it can be.

-Thank you Sean Tarpley
