Retired Machine Design Engineer, currently doing wild life rescues, am a Certified Texas Master Naturalist. The wife and I try to back country camp in the Colorado Rockies about a month every summer. Used to white water kayak and do a good bit of backpacking but.. we've gotten older now, (ie: when our boys were 7 and 9 we climbed Longs Peak together, now we have grand kids older than that). We still hike and do some light mountain biking. We were high school sweethearts and are still married, ...and, amazingly enough to each other.
