Since returning to Delaware 20 odd years ago caving has been reduced to occasional trips to TAG. Otherwise, sailing/boating has been a passion of mine since I was a little kid growing up on the Chesapeake. We've sailed 40' catamarans in the British Virgin Islands and Granada, charted two barges thru the canals of France and also charted mono-hulls a few times on our beloved Chesapeake Bay.
As a youngster I was fascinated by geology and also collected minerals. I have no doubt that led to my love of caves and caving. Imagine my surprise inside Berry's Cave in Mo. to watch as cavers came from inside the cave! They were from the Rolla School of Mines and they told me about the NSS.
Almost any technology dealing with computers interests me, but mainly that with relational database technology.
Finally, working within a large organization like the NSS is also very satisfying, most of the time.
