The act of flying is itself an adventure, and most pilots think of themselves as adventurous people.  This portion of the web site is intended to familiarize pilots with some of my past and present adventures.

Of interest to military and former military pilots would be the first, and arguably the greatest adventure of my life. 

After winning a Green Beret at Fort Bragg North Carolina in late 1968, I spent four months training with the Navy Seals in Key West Florida before reporting to A-251, Plei Djereng, an A team on the Cambodian border, where I served as the camp medic from the summer of 1969 to the summer of 1970.

Upon returning home and receiving an M.D. from the University of Michigan in 1974, I settled here in Seattle and have been having adventures ever since. 

As of this writing, my flying boat has taken me up the inside passage to Juneau and back 48 times. Click here for articles and photos of these flights: Article 1, Article 2

With the exception of the military pictures, all of the other photos are recent.  I remain an active climber, scuba diver, sky diver, sailor, and pilot.  Just remember, if you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space.
