Sailing - Current sailboat is kept at Grandpappy's Marina on Texoma. Below is the Lancer Powersailer brochure of what it looked like back in 1983 :-). The lower photo is taken in 2007. The boat still remains without a name but rumor has it that it will get "BLOWME" as the official name. We have invested over $3,000 in Blow Me .... don't laugh she sails and was paid for in cash by myself and two other partners.

Backpacking - Kyle and I went on our near annual backpacking adventure. In 2007 we decided on a trip to Colorado near Westcliffe in the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness area. Below is the trail map to Venable Lake where we spent the evening and trail to the saddle and summit. I made it to the top of the saddle Kyle summited on Venable Peak.
