Mike Wolfe will tell you he's been a "picker" for just about forever. "When I was 5, I had my first big score when I found a pile of old bicycles in my neighborhood on trash day," Wolfe of "American Pickers" TV show fame writes on his website . "And I was always bringing home old bottles and other random stuff. I never thought of it as junk: to me, it was beautiful. " Now the former competitive cyclist wants to encourage children to get into the act. "Kid Pickers: How to Turn Junk Into Treasure," written by Wolfe and Lily Spengelmeyer, will hit bookstores in April.

Riding the rapids of the Colorado River is on my list of things to do soon. So is traveling the great trout streams of Idaho and Wyoming. Alaska is in my future too. Until I get there, I'll settle for daydreaming as I stroll the aisles of the annual Great Western Sports RV & Travel show. It's back at the Anaheim Convention Center starting today and running through Jan. 5. I'm not the only daydreamer in Orange County.
