teams that started this race, there are 9 mushers still racing, 6 of which are
rookies. Fourteen racers have scratched and will not finish the race; only one

Story
Tagline
Retired military and manufacturing exectuive living in Austin, TX and writing on Leadership.
Introduction

Recently retired and taking opportunities as they come. I have somewhat random thoughts on leadership, the local Community and State un-governments, the National Government and about anything and everything that takes place in the world that seems fit to be commented on. Currently spending a great deal of time writing on leadership and management and my life's adventures in both. I attend to an uncommonly amount of family activities almost daily and whatever else comes up.

Bragging rights
I have two great (& grown kids) and three even better Grandkids.
