Hello TVenturing.com,

My name is Mike Parie and I just started http://expeditionnorth.com

Like so many others here I love to explore the wilds and thought that there was a missing service here to introduce others to the outdoors that have families or injuries like myself which may limit their outdoor adventures.

Expedition Norths' single-day overland Vermont tours offer a rich experience, filled with activities that include; photography, videography, bird and wildlife viewing, swimming, trail exploring, and finding that exclusive campsite off the beaten path per se.
We will show you Vermont's hidden treasures. Whether it be mountain vistas, waterfalls, autumn valleys or that once in a lifetime photograph you always sought. Our tours are family, pet and trailer friendly.

In addition to being an avid outdoorsman and 4 wheel drive enthusiast I belong to several Overlanding clubs and forums like this excellent forum here. I have sponsored and provided my tours to these clubs in a way to introduce others to the hobby and the great State of Vermont.

For the last 4 years, I have volunteered my photography and videography services to the Vermont State Parks. I am always giving back to my community and state.

I am an extra class licensed amateur radio operator of 20 years and participate in several public service events each year by providing amateur radio communications to charitable organizations that need assistance across Vermont.

I feel one must love what they do in order to excel and that is why Expedition North Excels !

I agree, if you love what you do, it makes all the difference! If I ever make it out to Vermont, sounds like I have someone that can show me around.

Forgive me... this is a bit "off topic", but given your experience in radios, do you have any recommendations for some of the "hand held" amateur radios for the beginner? My main purpose is for emergency situations, but not limited to any emergency frequencies as I may get caught up in casual use as well.

Thanks!
Jack

Jack,

I see no one really answered this question, not sure you still need an answer but...

I have a nice Yaesu FT2900 R for my rig.  2 Meter only, but very powerful and inexpensive.
For my hand help I got a Baofeng GT3-TP dual frequency.  For $68 it came with car charger, wall charger, and programming cable.  It is also capable of using the race radio frequencies.  It has held up great and works extremely well.
