 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
My wife Pixie and I are currently operating Pilot Cars, i.e. escorting oversize truck loads, whatever, whenever or wherever. Been doing this for a couple of years now. Get to travel all over, been able to spend some time with former shipmates and other friends. Good job, pays pretty well, and it is definetly NOT 9 to 5.
Moved back to my home town in 2001 to take care of my Mom when she got sick. She passed on in July 2007. Now have her house up for sale and thinking about moving back to the West Coast, either CA or OR.Pixie's brother lives in Roseville, OR, so might go there for awhile. Anybody need a house in the country?
