One of Ross’ earliest memories is arriving in Port Carling by steamer at the age of 3. He knew then, that Muskoka was a special place. As a youth, when working at summer camp, he thumbed his way to Muskoka for days off even though his family was cottaging elsewhere. On graduating from university, Ross worked in sales and marketing for more than 30 years and, as with many in that profession he traveled. Throughout his career he lived or worked on all continents except Antarctica.
