Good Day ! and welcome to my website .
My name is Paul Boudreau and this is my website. It is about the use of technology in the outdoors . Nature is a place of great beauty and wonder . It draws countless numbers of people on a daily basis to explore and participate in all it has to offer .
Technology … outdoortech4u … refers to ALL that we bring with us to participate in the Natural World .
My Early Days
I was born and raised in a small coastal village . I grew up in a family of nine – four brothers and two sisters .
From my father , I learned about the outdoors … hunting , fishing , camping , and how to survive in the wilderness . From my mother , I was introduced to the world of books and food .
As you can imagine , sitting at a table of nine , the atmosphere was never boring . Here I acquired my love for adventure … in the real world , but also in the pages of books .
On My Own
We lived on the seacoast at the edge of the forest . Before school , after school and on weekends I would be off to the forest or in the boat fishing . Soon I began to see the results of my efforts . A rabbit , a duck , a partridge or a fish .
This quickly got the attention of my younger brothers and soon we had ” more boots on the ground ” and this meant more ” eyes ” for spotting and more “hands ” for the tasks that needed doing .
After all , who was going to clean all this fish and game ! Well I guess , that’s what little brothers are for , and this worked quite well for a short period of time .
My first piece of outdoor tech were binoculars . What an advantage to be able to see at 10-power . Not only was I frightening less wildlife , but I was seeing so much more .
This grew into better backpacks , better tents and all the tools and gadgets that we needed for all the fun that we were having .
I continued to read from my mother’s library of books and quickly she began to steer me to the great explorers and adventurers of days past .
With four brothers and two sisters , It wasn’t long before fish were being measured and weighed . This was fun … but now it was getting serious .
I began to read , study , and follow as much information and technology as I could get my hands on , and of course , friendly competition , required one to share . This worked out well because some one would always pick up what another had missed .
New fishing poles , fishing lines , tackle and gear , were all shared in the hope of learning the latest trick that would lead to success .
In For The Long Haul
I became very proficient at many outdoor activities and like my mother , I enjoyed showing all this outdoor tech to my family and friends . This habit has endured , and to this day I have introduced many people to the wonders of nature and the great outdoors .
Here , at outdoortech4u , I want to share my many experiences in nature with you and to hopefully learn many new tips and tricks to make my time in nature that much more satisfying .
Stay with me , and let’s explore all this cutting edge technology that has enabled us to extend ourselves further and further into the unknown .
