Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (A)
Allin, K Rodney

My father K. Rodney Allin, whose mother was Heleanor Margaret MacQuarrie (the Scotch in us), had a life that was full of more adventure than most of us ever dream of.
He was a wildlife photographer for Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, which is where a lot of those stories come from. -Including several near death and meeting pirates.
Rod also filmed for Warren Miller making ski movies for a time, as well as freelance work.
I finished recently, a book about all the biggest adventures in his life, that he had started, and was unable to finish before he passed away from complications of cancer and strokes. 
I know any of you that like humor, or outdoor activities will find something interesting from his life.  There are a few excerpts from the book on my web page if you'd like to see them.
I have to say Rod was an extraordinary man. Not because he was my father (which was enough for me), but all the extra things he did, and the kind of person he was. (Not to mention being Scotch as well :D!)

You can't help but be inspired one way or another into really living your life after reading this.

Thanks to Robin Ashton at for sending this in.
