This is Where It All Began, Here At

About 20 Years ago.
My Son and I thinking about the future.

This is the page where I try to explain what we do and who we are, here at Light Outdoors. How we started and what we are doing now.

Light Outdoors was started in 1999 as an idea.

I put my love of all things outdoors into a business and moved it onto the internet.
We started out selling all of the supplies that Bass Pro Shops had as well as a lot of things they didn’t have.

Sometimes things go good sometimes they don’t, and sometimes they seem like they don’t but they really are going good.
After a few setbacks we returned as mostly a home improvement and landscaping company serving the greater Shelby County Alabama area.

But we are always evolving and moving forward.

I also added some affiliate links with a lot of great products for folks if they are interested.
As well as a few other links.
It doesn’t cost you anything more to click through here to buy what you are looking for and it helps a lot of people other than my son and I and we donate to some charities to help others when we can.

St Jude’s and The American Cancer Society are a couple of good ones. 
I recently lost some family members to cancer and would love nothing better than to see that disease wiped out. 
Even if you don’t buy anything through this site, it would be nice if you would donate to any one of those causes.

However, back to us.
We started as a sporting goods site, then moved into writing just what ever is on my mind. On this site you will find stories written by me, about anything and everything I can think of.
Personally after many years driving a truck and working on houses, I decided to start my own handy man business.
Thus Gary Light Handyman at Large was born. Although I still use the same email address.

I hope you enjoy your visit and I hope to have some interesting posts as time goes on.
