My Occupation retired - jubilado
My Bio I'm an adventure traveler. Been doing it all my life, mostly outdoors, camping, hiking, bush plane, but now taking up 3rd world trekking. Been to lots of Alaska hunting and fishing, many trips into the Idaho Wilderness flying out of McCall, was a hot shot firefighter, the Bushmen, out of Entiat Washington back in the late 60's, fly fish and coyote hunt mostly now and more into photography, oil painting, and trying to take up writing. Have been in about 20 businesses, the last being furniture business. Had a factory in China but sold my interest and pretty much retired. Have four daughters and a lovely and caring wife, two out of college (just) one a junior and one in 7th grade. My 7th grader, Kelsey has MD which creates some challenges for all of us but we are a very loving family and we are adapting. Am thinking of setting up a little adventure travel business, maybe get back into the furniture business, and finish up a book I started on my Hot Shot days.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Hot shot fire fighting back in the old days when a 54 hour day was logged fighting the Hornet ?Creek Fire and all the mischief we super charged kids would get into, even while putting in 70 hour average work weeks
