Bruce has frittered away most of his time in Universities and offices while daydreaming about being in the woods and on the streams. He and his lovely wife, Debbie, spent their first two weeks alone together in the Nantahala National Forest and the Outer Banks National Seashore. They have rarely been separated since.
Bruce has traveled extensively in South America and the Caribbean. He has traveled by boat into Mato Grosso and spent six weeks traveling from Belem to Manaus on the Amazon River. More recently Bruce has worked with the Sierra Club carrying out archaeological surveys in the Gila National Forest in New Mexico and working with the Conservation Voter group and various land conservation organizations.
The Yelton family now resides in East Middlebury where Bruce spends his time dispensing unsolicited wisdom and gardening.
