At the age of 15 I hit the road. From one coast to the other. At 22 I finished high school. Got married had 3 kids. Went to college. Work became my life. At 45 divorced. Life starts over.

I have learned that you cant see much traped by 4 walls. I now work partime at McDs on the Oregon coast. And have gottin back to the wild side. My kids are just now finding out who I am. Hopefully in 3 years I will move on to another part of this great land.

Bad job, cheap apt, lots of fun
