We live just north of Fairbanks, Alaska. Whitmanites shoot me a note if you are headed this way. Currently writing book about the "Fairbanks Four."

School Story:

Mountaineering Club kept me sane. Lots of Whitman adventures, mostly good! Who recalls catching free summer concerts at Fort Reno featuring Grin, Crank and other bands!

Who was your favorite teacher in high school?

Mr. Bricker, Electronics, TV Repair classes, History classes

Name one song that takes you back to high school whenever you hear it.

Dr.John: "Right Place, Wrong Time"

How did you find out about this website (please be specific; we want to know how to best reach people)?

Poking around, looking for old friends. I quit the Classmates site, it's one big hustle.

It's February as I write this. I'd hold off visiting for a couple months. Today my daughter & I were shoveling off snow from the woodshed to keep it from collapsing.

Great guitarist as I recall. We were in Jon Bricker's TV repair class together.

Still living in Alaska. Still teaching journalism at University of Alaska Fairbanks, but not for long. More books to write & places to go. Any Whitmanite visiting Fairbanks should look us up.
