Time for a sabbatical!
The last four years have been entirely too full of work days and most of my days off were one at a time.
Thus begins a journey to refresh ties with family and friends!


The BOO2 party was a great success and a fantastic time was had by all!
Loads of thanks to Jennifer, Michelle, Laser Greg , Clark, Rob, John and all the others
who work so hard to bring it all together.
The sabbatical was therapeutic for me in both body and spirit!
The refreshing of bonds with family and friends was long overdue in light of my rather nomadic existence.
Unfortunately I still haven't hit a lottery, so bills being what they are, it's almost time to get back to work.
Alas and AAAaaarrrRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!!
Back to a reality of more work in a reality painted with ice and snow!!!

Back in the saddle again! Whoopee!
Wisconsin - Casino promotional in Black River Falls, WI and feeds from Lambeau Field (TBD) - 12/21-23/02
Well, it's been a slow time, winter and the games are over.
I've got a couple of things in the fire, and I'll update soon.

On the freelance circuit once again.  
If you know of anyone in need of C or Ku uplink services have them send me an e-mail!
I'll also consider taking on work at a fixed facility.  It would be nice to stay in one place for a change.

However!
Have Passport, will travel!

You must be at least half crazy to survive for long in this line of work!
"After this many years on the road I definitely qualify on at least two counts!"
"There's nothing wrong with my mind that a little R&R out near Alpha Centauri wouldn't cure."
"Been there, done that, bought the tee-shirt and proceeded to puke all over it."

Greetings from Streetsboro, OH - 02/03/03
