My name is Greg Lanter, and at age 57 I Love being active!
My Hobbies include BMX Racing, Flying, Hiking, Backpacking, and Photography. I believe staying active is the key to staying young & healthy, and I plan to stay as healthy as possible even in to my golden years!
I'm usually the oldest person on the BMX track and feel slow in comparison to the younger more experienced riders, BUT I'll never give up. As long as I can ride around the track, win or lose, I will always do my best!
I have been a pilot over 41 years. My dad taught me how to fly at 15 years old, and we still enjoy flying together when we get the chance. I went on to get my commercial, multi-engine, and instrument ratings in the 1990's. My wife and I love to fly and visit family, go shopping, and try new restaurants!
My hiking and backpacking has been a huge part of my life since I was just a small boy. The very first thing I ever worked for was a pup-tent. After purchasing the tent I set it up in the backyard and slept out in a rainstorm all night,... I was hooked! I have enjoyed hiking, backpacking, and alpine style mountain climbing ever since. In a day and time that seems to have a lot of stress and background noise injected in to our lives, being in nature seems to bring a peace and serenity that I can't get any other way.
Photography seems to go hand-in-hand with all of my adventures. It's my way of documenting activities so I can relive them in the future,... it brings me the same peace and serenity reliving an adventure through pictures and videos as it did while it was playing out the very first time.
I have to thank God for the strength, and my friends & family for their encouragement!
Remember,... Stay active, stay young!
