I am The Carl Sullivan, growing up it seemed like everyone knew my name whether it was for the good or bad. I liked to push the envelope with everything I did, even if that was people’s envelopes to the point of them snapping at me. I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma with my mother, father, and sister. When my sister was about 5 years old my parents decided to have me, they thought since the first child was so well behaved why not have another! Well surprise surprise I kept them on theirs toes since day one and somehow continue to do so. When I was younger I couldn’t help but wonder off from my parents everywhere we went to see the unique things I wanted to see. I was never into going with the flow and following the crowd. This probably explains why I never did well in school, being told what to learn wasn’t interesting to me. I would had rather been outside learning new ideas through experimenting and trial. Boy Scouts gave me that outlet to explore the outdoors and learn new life skills along with survival skills and receive the honorable award of Eagle Scout. Camping with the Boy Scouts I have been all over Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. I was also lucky to be able to do 3 high adventure backpacking trips with them, 1 at Double H and 2 at Philmont. High school was an adventure in itself for me, I didn’t fit into a single group rather I fit in with everyone I had friends from all walks of life. I knew the goodie goods, cheerleaders, stoners, jocks, nerds, skaters, thugs, saints, and my favorite the partiers who viewed life as one big party (which is what we did.. A lot of). Fortunately my carefree lifestyle brought me to making major decisions of either attempting college or joining the United States Military. The Marine Corps recruiter got ahold of me first and here I am almost to my 6 year mark. I have been all over the United States, to Ireland and currently living in Okinawa Japan. My first duty station when I hit was the fleet was MCAS Yuma, Arizona which gave me an incredible opportunity to travel to San Diego, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas and explore the desert and its many wonders. Next I was stationed at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida which was a complete 180 from the desert but a well needed adventure. While there I explored Destin Beach, Daytona, New Orleans, and Pensacola. After a lot of uncertainty in Florida of my next steps in life I received orders to Okinawa Japan and I couldn’t had been anymore excited. My goal for this blog is to share my experiences as they happen and also write some post about past trips I have taken. I want to inspire people to get outdoors and see something new, the world is too big just to say in our own little bubbles and not explore.
