I'm a fan of most outdoor activities especially XC skiing, hiking, cycling, sailing and try to take every opportunity to get out into the wilderness! I led Family Outings trips for years before my son "aged out" but still love hanging out with kids of all ages. Good food is a priority on my trips!

Eddy Luttmer

Eddy was chair of the Family Outings group for years and pioneered many favorite trips including Pinestead ski weekends, Worthley Pond vacations and Nickerson camping. His own kids have long since "aged out" but he loves the outdoors and sharing his skills with kids (and adults).
