Tell us a little about your life:

Summer of 1975, Hicthhiked around the country with Rudy Perez. That fall I enrolled at Columbia College in Sonora CA. That winter I moved back to my parents house, broke. Instead of studying, I spent my time working in a gold mine blowing holes in rocks.
I then moved to Seattle, I think in the springtime.I started walking the docks looking for work. Long story short, got hired on a boat. I had found my way to Alaska and the fishing industry. I worked as an engineer having worked my way up from a stupid kid. I did take a break and tried the normal life. I owned a business in Kirkland WA and sold after 2 years.I just couldn't stand working 5 days for only 2 off.
The last 8 years I have worked on the east coast, working on a Tug boat. I work 2 weeks on 2 off.
Oh yeah baby,
I have also traveled extensively during my single days.

School Story:

This is my only regret. I wish I would have studied harder and taken advantage of going to a to good school. The school of hard knocks was fine but there was a better way.
This not to say I didn't have a lot of fun, of what I remember.
A fond memory was coach Kabello yelling at Nolten Burton, Perez and myself as we ran down to the lower field to ditch gym.
We had a lot of fun times, Stubas falcon. Parties at that dump Rudy and I had rented fo 50 bucks. Drinking ,smoking, and laughing that is what I remember.Lots of laughing. A toast to all you guys. and a Prayer to Scott Robinsion and Chris Fisher we miss you guys.
