This seems like a good place…

to land.  Thanks Ian for inviting me to join this.  It seems fitting on more than several levels, first and foremost, I live in the central portion of the State of Washington, USofA, the heart of the Washington Apple and Wine region, so orchards and vineyards are easy to come by, and a joy to drive through.  It’s small town life, quiet country roads and mostly very relaxing.

I’ll call myself a halfademic, since I work out of the local university, but don’t work for it, and don’t teach, but I interact and collaberate.  I am a trained geophysicist specializing in GPS technology applied to earth sciences, surveying and imaging.  I get to travel to some pretty cool locations that not a lot of people get to see, much less see from my vantage point.  And I travel, a lot.  Typically there is a bike with me, since admittedly I am a cycling addict.  I ride road, mountain and cyclocross, and race a little of each.  I have latched on part time with the local bike shop, doing bike fitting, leading group rides, doing design work, etc in my free time.

Music…  I like all kinds, but I keep coming back to 3 main genres.  80’s hardcore/punk had a profound impact on my life (some shows had an impact on my head as well) when I was growing up.  Classic rock from the 60’s and 70’s was what my parents listened to, and still one of my favorites, and the last 6 years or so, I have been diving into modern stoner metal.  All that said, I will listen to just about anything, and take music playing over television at any time.

So enough about me, I am glad to be here, and look forward to sharing.
