Interlaken - June 2007

Today my buddy Jim and I decided to take a drive up from Lutry to Interlaken, Switzerland for a impromptu over-night trip. We packed our bags and jumped in his BMW X3 and headed north. The drive up was great. The roads in Switzerland are really quite nice and not much traffic at all on the freeways. Coming into the city was breath-taking! Interlaken is its namesake being right in a picturesque valley on a little strip of land between to gorgeous lakes. Jim got a room at the Victoria JungFrau Hotel (www.Victoria-JungFrau.ch) right in the downtown area of Interlaken. This was a very elegant hotel right near the city’s center, built in 1865, and has been host to many different famous people over the years, for example; during the Second World War the hotel was used by the Swiss Army Chief of Staff, General Henri Guisan as his headquarters.

Munich - April 2007

Today I am off to Munich, Germany for the weekend to check out some night clubs and maybe a museum, even a cathedral or two. The airport is very cool in Geneva. There were elevators everywhere and it was all very accessible - even the restrooms. There is actually one check-in desk that was for assistive only and as usual, no checked bags for me. I am just carrying my new Kelty (www.Kelty.com) daypack.

Melbourne - May 2007

…Now for the second leg of our trip. We flew out of Hong Kong the evening of the 10th on Cathay Pacific flight (www.cathaypacific.com) on an Airbus A-380 in first class once again. We were pampered all the way by the Cathay Pacific crew! I was the only one awake on an overnight flight in the first class cabin yet again on the 9 hour trip to Melbourne. We were almost diverted to Sydney due to some seriously thick fog, but we just made it in time to miss the fog. Melbourne Airport a.k.a. Tullamarine (www.melbourneairport.com.au/) was very easy to navigate and the people were very friendly.

Adapted Rock Climbing at GVSU

In February of 2006, I took part in the Adaptive Rock Climbing Clinic at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. The event is put on in part by Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital (where I did my rehab. after my accident), Kentwood Parks and Rec. and Grand Rapids Wheelchair Sports Association. We had a great turnout for the day. A lot of climbers got to show their stuff. I actually made it all the way to the top and got to ring the bell twice that day.

Hong Kong - May 2007

I have left Geneva for London and on to Hong Kong. Once again the TSA’s at Geneva Airport push me right through and give me the rock star entrance.

In the Beginning..

on Friday, 09 December 1994.

In the Beginning..

I was born in a small town named Whitehall in western Michigan along the coastline of Lake Michigan. I was raised on a small "hobby" farm a few miles outside of town. We had the typical animals -- horses, chickens, goats, guinea hens, dogs and cats. So, I was well versed in manual labor as a child.. Also, I had been in athletics since I could pretty much hold a bat and glove. I started out with baseball, playing little league ball for 6 years. Then I moved on to many different sports at my school in junior high. I wrestled, ran track, played basketball and then got into soccer.
