Story
Introduction

Born in Spokane Washington, grew up on farm 6 miles south of Greenacres WA. Rode motorcycles, hunted birds and deer, learned how to fix things.

Graduated from Gonzaga University, with degree in Mechanical Engineering. Spent working life testing various aerospace systems. My specialty is test and measurement.

Retired in 1997, spent 5 years traveling US and Canada. Decided that Coos Bay was where I wanted to live. Good year around climate, cool summers and temperate winters,with no snow, plus fishing, water , and just enough people and services.
