About the author:
Steve Priest has a thirst for outdoor activities. Running, cross country skiing, biking, hiking, paddling, and triathlons are among the interests that keep him physically fit, mentally alert, and young.

When trying to explain his enthusiasm for outdoor actions, Steve paraphrases Thoreau's, "Discover I had not lived" with the expression, "Never say, 'I wish I had'." Steve does not want to rationalize a missed opportunity to enjoy life. Personal and physical barriers of embarrassment, reticence, and other priorities are not justification for saying, "I wish I had."

Steve has been a college professor and a healthcare administrator. He has written books and articles on information technology. These quests are professionally rewarding and intellectually challenging; however, they do not provide physical fitness.

His outdoor pursuit began after a torn Achilles tendon, a resultant limp, and weight gain. He turned to physical activity in search of a stress reliever as well as a "lifestyle for the long haul."

Steve's writings on 'Outdoor Play' enthusiastically portray the entertainment of the outdoors. Travel with Steve meet the challenges of outdoor sports that are the cornerstone of his lectures and stories.

Steve's 'Outdoor Play' multi-media presentations include:

* Androscoggin Source to the Sea
* A Rescue on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway
* The Seasons of New Hampshire
* Canoe & Kayak Challenges on the East Branch of the Penobscot
* Paddling New Hampshire and Maine
* AMC's Madison Hut
* Hiking Mt Monadnock
* The Welch Dickey Mountain Trail
* Mount Washington via Tuckerman Ravine and Lion Head

Steve Priest resides in Bedford, New Hampshire with Catherine, his wife of many years. They have two sons and two grandchildren.
