ABOUT ME

 

Dennis Ketterman

 

I've been an event planner and marketer for the past 35 years, promoting everything from drag racing to softball to chariot racing. However, as of late (the past 13 years), I have become interested in and writing about the environment, health, fitness, sustainability, and other stuff that really matters. The following is what keeps me off the streets, up at night, and pays the bills.

 

 

Alternatives Magazine

 

This is my day job. It's an internet-based magazine, launched in 2004 about the time gas prices went crazy and energy became a very big buzzword and how it would become to affect every facet of our lives. It still does and now we have a new term to deal with -- Climate Change. 

 

 

Bike and Paddle

 

Another internet-based magazine. It was first published in 2006 and is a spinoff of Alternatives. Why? Sustainability and Sustainable Travel is a big new trend today and biking and paddle sports are encouraged at many levels to help combat Climate Change and promote alternative transportation.

Break Away, Live small, Do Stuff That Matters

 

This website evolved after reading and viewing so much about the chaos in people's lives simply because they are driven by accumulating "stuff." Or working at a job they hate, just for a paycheck. And then waking up one day finding themselves old, retired, and alone. The catchphrase for the site is: "Have You Ever Thought About Re-thinking Your Life." You can check it out here. www.breakawaylivesmall.com

 

 

Bigfork Adventures

 

Why BFA? Because we cannot have too many adventures in our lives. BFA is about making connections and meeting like-minded people, getting out and getting away from the everyday B.S. that seems to dominate our waking hours. And what better place on the planet to unwind and enjoy the natural world than here in Bigfork and the Flathead Valley. Truly the "Last Best Place."
