Hi and welcome to the next stage of my life. Join me as I travel the country exploring the near and far looking for the meaning of….I don’t exactly know what meaning I’m looking for, but I’m going in search of it, whatever it is.
Augie’s Adventures Beginnings
Before we start on this journey, I guess a little about how I got here and what makes me tic would help. Since early in my life I discovered, the natural world of forests and waters are what makes my heart beat. I have been known to get lost in local mall, but can aimlessly wander around in the Tetons for days, always finding my way back to base camp. The sweat of a hot July in Florida or the numb fingers on an Alaska hike are the things that keep me alive. My goal is to get others out to do the same.
Andrew Aughenbaugh can be found traveling North America in his off-road built Toyota Tacoma looking for his next adventure. Whether fishing, kayaking, mountain biking, hunting, or running the back trails in his 4X4, Andrew finds the adventure in the journey and not the trophies collected. His writings and photography often reflect on the personal interaction with the natural world and living life through outdoor experiences.
Currently, Andrew’s main writing focus is this website Augie’s Adventures and finishing a few books. His articles and photographs have appeared in several national magazines to include North American Whitetail, Wildfowl, JP Magazine, Mid-Atlantic Game and Fish, North American Hunter, Chesapeake Angler, Low-Range Magazine, Huntingnet.com, Sportsmen Channel Magazine, as well as writing a long running outdoor column for the Carroll County Times in Maryland.
In 2012 when Andrew returned from a summer in Alaska working as an off-road adventure guide, he put his writing focus on this website. Augie’s Adventures covers a broad spectrum of outdoor sports topics to include overlanding and vehicle builds, fishing, hunting, kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, camping and just getting out and enjoying nature.
These days Andrew can be found in Fort Myers Florida working for FEMA as a public-sector Site Inspector, helping the cities and counties rebound from Hurricane Irma. At the completion of his contract in late 2018, Andrew plans to embark on a 6-month roam across North America camping in his OZ tent.
