After graduation life became an adventure, including some college, lots of travel and just learning to enjoy life. My education has been diversified to say the least attending several colleges and universities a few courses at a time and ending my formal education at Iowa State.
My occupations have been many, with the last 35 years spent in broadcasting
in one form or another. I have many things I love, my wife Chris, my daughter
Paula and my son Shad. I love also love Ames and Iowa. What I am and what I will
be is always grateful to the people and things that have surrounded my life in
this great part of the country we live in. The are a lot of things I've left out
but I'm sure we'll share more as you continue to visit this site.
A real vacation, wow it's been a long time. Usually there's been a work option tied to it ut this one is pure pleasure. Many have asked why are you driving that far and all I can say is "America Baby!". There aren't many places on earth you can drive that far without check points and showing your passport and isn't that a big part of the flying hassle. Many changes in the country side, stop and go when we want and enjoying the company of my family on what may be our last vacation as one. My son was going but came into a new job so has to stay behind and with our daughter graduating ISU this year it's not likely she'll be up for more backseat trips. I'm sure my Mothers' old addage of 'It's good to go and even better to get back home" will apply but for now it's a vacation, a real vacation!
