About the author:
Steve Priest has a thirst for all-seasons outdoor activities that challenge his physical abilities. Running, cross-country skiing, biking, hiking, paddling, and triathlons are among the interests that keep him healthy, physically fit, mentally alert, and young.
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 "body builder for the long haul."
When trying to explain his enthusiasm for outdoor actions, Steve likes to paraphrase Thoreau's, "Discover I had not lived" with the expression, "Never say, 'I wish I had'." Steve does not want to rationalize having missed an 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.
Steve's writings and lectures on 'Outdoor Play' enthusiastically portray the friendships, healthy lifestyle, and entertainment of the outdoors. Join Steve in sharing the values, challenges, and humor of outdoor incentives that are the cornerstone of his lectures and stories.
Steve Priest resides in Bedford, New Hampshire with Catherine, his wife of many years. They have two sons and two grandchildren.
