I am a long-time Family Outings ski and hike leader with a passion for sharing the outdoors with kids. My own son has long-ago aged out of the family group but I still love it.

Eddy originated the Pinestead trip and many other Family Outings favorites over the years. His kids are also long grown and gone but he thrives on making complicated meals, outfitting people with used gear and teaching young and old how to cross country ski.
