    What's your favorite "commune with nature" spot? We have 20 acres of property in Guffey that we like to hike around in.

    Name an outdoor activity you're curious to try. I'd like to get better at rafting. It's so quiet and peaceful. You just sit back and reflect as you watch life pass by.

    What is an earthship? We're building one on our property. It's an environmentally friendly, self- sustaining living structure that makes its own heat, recycles its water, generates its own garden. You can grow produce almost all year round, even at 9,000 feet.

    What would you choose for an ideal "adventure" vacation? An Indiana Jones-type archeology dig for some sort of fabulous treasure.

    Were you in ideal physical shape, what would you try? I met a guy who was doing this cross-country cowboy thing of riding a horse from Oregon to Florida just him, his horse and his dog. That would be a fabulous thing to do, maybe all the way down to Central and South America.
