Hi, and welcome to ODYSSEY POSSE, a site dedicated to bringing out your inner ADVENTURER
A BIT ABOUT ME
Hi, My name is Paul and as far back as I can remember, when I was a little tacker I loved running around outdoors, exploring and having “adventures” as kids do and I was only limited by my imagination (and sometimes my parents sensibility)
If there was a tall tree around, I’d climb it and try to reach the top with total disregard for my safety. I’d ‘surf’ my little old school plastic skateboard down the flooded gutters of my street during storms pretending to be a pro-surfer. I’d scoot down the steep, grassy embankments at a nearby reservoir on cardboard and roll down them until my head was spinning and I was grass stained from head to toe. I won’t even get started on the local MUD POOLS… Aah the memories of digging the dirt out of my ear holes for days after
As I got older my Dad introduced me to body surfing, then he and my Grandfather taught me the fundamentals of boating and fishing. At around 12 years old I joined the scouts and loved it. Through the scouts I became very interested in camping and everything associated with it but my Dad became pretty ill at around this time and we didn’t have much opportunity to go camping as a family so instead, my parents encouraged me to build a campsite in our backyard which I did. All of my mates would be stoked to be camping out at my house on the weekends. Cooking sausages and marshmallows over the campfire and making hot chocolate and telling ghost stories until we were too S#*T scared to go to sleep… HAPPY DAYS!
Fast forward many years and guess what? Yep, I grew into a responsible adult (I’ll use that term loosely)/worker/father/consumer. There were bills to be paid, mouths to be fed, Bosses to be kept happy (yeah right) and somewhere along the line I lost sight of a very important component in my life… My imagination and zest for being outdoors
But all was not lost…
…Long story short, about 10 years ago I took stock of my life and hit my reset button. Since then I’ve rekindled my passion for adventure and all things outdoors, trading holidays in nice hotels for camping in the GREAT OUTDOORS where I belong. Then there’s the Fishing, Boating, surfing, skiing, four wheel driving and all the stuff that connects me back with my inner kid. This is how it’s meant to be
