I grew up in El Paso, Texas where there were as many cacti on the ground as there were grains of sand, so camping in a tent was certainly not something you did out west in the desert. But on the east coast where vibrant, green plant life persists everywhere and water can be found just lying on the ground like a lazy hound, puddling into lakes, ponds, and oceans, it seems like camping in a razor-thin piece of tarp with nothing for protection is more than okay. It's fun. (For those of you who don't know, El Paso has almost every poisonous lizard there is in the world, and I hated stepping on scorpions while crossing the kitchen late at night as a kid. Hurt like a hell! And no, don't say it. I know what you're thinking.)

And so, there you have it. Outside of books, movies, and teaching, I like the outdoors. Ohio has great spots for fishing, unlike the desert I grew up in. And yes, my favorite colors are blue and green. Who would've thought? Something was just missing in my childhood.
So, what are your outdoor interests?
