(SitNews) - Gregg Harrison, the owner the operator of Diversified Diving, is a rugged individual, a quintessential Alaskan and the Big Brother of Little Brother Lashawn.

He, and LaShawn have been fast friends for 2 years, and bonded over enjoying the great outdoors, movies, and cooking too.  "We go check out the girls as well", adds Gregg just to add balance to things.

LaShawn is like a character out of a Jack London novel, he's interested in trapping, fishing, hunting, the wilds, and surviving in the outdoors.  He's an avid reader, and likes spending time with Gregg.

LaShawn says, he likes his Big Brother Greg because he's fun, and is his best buddy."

LaShawn has especially enjoyed kayaking with Greg as they out-paddled everyone else, and this was just awesome!!

Gregg says that LaSahwn is game, and that is what I like about him. He doesn't whine or complain when we are out.  We go exploring, fishing up the creeks, and climbing trails.  We both like to see what is on the other side of the hill."
