Hi everyone! I am a long time lurker and fan of this site and finally decided to start throwing my two cents in at times. I grew up in the 1960’s so I have a hunch I might be older than the average ATS member. But definitely not the oldest as I have recently been reading some interesting posts from a ninety year old man!

The name TZela I made from combining the T., which is the first initial of a beloved 15 year dog that I recently lost, and the name Zela, the name of a parakeet. After I set up the username I thought about "googling" it and I was surprised to see that “tzela” is a Hebrew word and also a very beautiful Lake Tzela in Canada. After viewing photos online of that lake I decided to put it on my list of places I want to go visit someday! I enjoy many outdoor sports and activities, especially water sports and kayaking. I always carry a camera but unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I have not seen a ufo, alien, bigfoot, mothman, etc. even in pretty remote areas. But I promise I am ready if the opportunity for a photo ever happens!

I am new to this kind of thing and still need to learn how to insert quotes, photos, video, etc. I look forward to participating now instead of just viewing the website!
