Hello, I'm Ben and I enjoy long walks on the beach... just kidding I actually prefer lakes over beaches. My favorite lake to go to is Lake Gaston where I enjoy wakeboarding and riding jet skis with my family.

However, if I were to find myself trapped on a deserted island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, I would bring these ten books:

  1. Fire Skills 50 Methods for Starting Fires Without Matches by David Aman
  2. Building Skin-On-Frame Boats by Robert Morris
  3. A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin
  4. Hardwork: A Life On and Off the Court by Roy Williams
  5. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
  6. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J. K. Rowling
  7. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  8. Alex Rider: Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz
  9. Not Without Hope by Nick Schuyler and Jeré Longman
  10. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

Since I am not stuck on a deserted island, I enjoy attending sporting events and watching them on TV. I root for all of the local professional teams.
