I enjoy the outdoors and have a degree in Biology. My 7 grandchildren keep me quite busy. Born in Nyack, New York City, New York and moved to the Catskill Mountains when I was 6. We lived next to NYC's reservoir and that is where I learned to fish, swim, farm and accomplished many other outdoor activities. Moved to Florida and I hated it - sand all over and sticky water!!! Give me the mountains any day. Alabama is sweet and home now. It has mountains and the beach if I want to go deep sea fishing.
