Please accept my personal welcome--at least as personal as I can make it--to the grand opening of bucktilton.com, my website, where you can, should you be interested, learn a lot about me, what I'm doing, and what I would like to do. For more than 25 years I have been privileged to work as an educator in wilderness medicine, rescue, and survival--and in the process I co-founded the Wilderness Medicine Institute (WMI), now a division of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). During those years, in addition to my books, magazines have published more than 1,000 articles I've written, and I've been a contributing editor for Backpacker since 1989 (check out my Medicine Man column). When not teaching or writing, I've been out there--hiking, paddling, biking, climbing (and falling) far more miles and times than I'll ever be able to remember. Having been there, I can help. So, have a look around . . . and let me know your thoughts. Thank you for joining me!

I have been privileged to know Buck in person and learn wilderness medicine skills from him. Today, living halfway across the world from him, I refer to him fairly often as I try to spread the knowledge and wisdom I learned from him. As it seems, I'll be a frequent visitor to his blog and continue to enjoy learning more from him.
