I have been active in the outdoors since the late 70's when I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and started rock climbing and backpacking. I always enjoyed the time I spent in CA climbing at location like Lovers Leap, Pinnacles National Monument and Yosemite. In 1990 I moved to just north of Seattle and have taken advantage of all the great outdoor activities that exist in the area. I retired in 2015 which has enabled me to get out more hiking and fly fishing and I have also been doing section hikes of the JMT each summer. I have been involved with search and rescue in our area since the early 1990's and have found it very rewarding and would recommend others get involved if you have a local search and rescue organization in your area.
I am a mechanical engineer by trade and always have enjoyed working on cars and motorcycles. While it is a little off the topic of this website, I have included a link to my blog where I have shared what I have been learning while I restore old Honda CT90's manufactured back in the late 60's and early 70's.
