2014 Bio: I retired 7 years ago, and haven't looked back. I LOVE being retired. I love to travel,- road trips, cruises, Europe. I've enjoyed learning to play a steel drum for friends, and enjoyed taking some adult ed classes, especially a couple of database programming classes. From that, sprang the elcap64.com website. In 2012 I got the urge to tie dye, and looked into how things are done these days. Boy has it changed (at least from what I used to do ca 1969). I had so much fun learning new techniques that I actually started an online shop: myinnerhippie.biz aka myinnerhippie.etsy.com Come check it out! Last year I packed up and put my house on the market, and headed to Arizona to be closer to my daughter. I intended to lived with my dog and 2 cats in my small motor home for just a few months, until my house sold, and then I would buy a home. It took 6 months to sell the house, and by then it was winter. I was enjoying the desert so much, I decided to play Snow Bird until spring. I have since bought a home in Payson, AZ and am loving it!

I'm not over the hill yet, but the view from here is fantastic!!

After El Cap, I went to Grossmont for 2 years, receiving an A.A. in Data Processing. Been working as a techie ever since.

I married in 1967 and was divorced, with 2 wonderful children, in 1972. End of that story. My kids, Danielle, and Corwin, have always been the brightest lights in my life.

I got hooked on photography and took some adult ed. classes, joined some photo clubs, etc. It has been my love since then. I was fortunate enough to live in Arizona for 4+ years and spent many weekends exploring all over the state - camera in hand. What a beautiful place!!!!!! I'm a desert rat at heart.

While in Arizona, I also took up 4-wheeling. Great fun!!! It's also a great help when looking for photo ops. I'm in Colorado now, and doing much less 4-wheeling, for various reasons, including the weather, but it's still great fun.. I love camping, especially off-road. 4X4 Rule # 1: If you don't get stuck, you're not trying hard enough!

If I could do 1 thing differently in high school, it would be to take Photography classes.

It'll be a couple of years before I am able to retire, but this year I decided to practice retirement a bit. I took all of June off work and drove to Alaska in an RV. Me, my dog, and my 2 cats. It was the most wonderful vacation I've ever taken. It was also a good practice run. I'm pretty sure that, as long as I have my health, I'm going to be very good at retiring!

I look forward to seeing everyone in October.
