Today, I arrived home after 3 full weeks away, two of them spent soloing or free falling. I can’t say that re-entry hasbeen smooth… actually there’s not much I can say about re-entry just yet, as I’m still trying to … Continue reading

Warning: May not be appropriate for the sexually squeamish, my children (or spouse) or those who like to gossip. Ok, I’ll say it: I’m seeing a lot of very sexy fly fishermen. Yea, Brad Pitt made it look good … Continue reading
