I believe this was taken in September '93. I was about to fly from Peoria
to Seattle to begin my first real job -- an internship in Redmond, WA for
Microsoft corporation. This big family crew actually came to the Peoria
airport to see me off.

1993 g 52:
I loved Seattle right away. I couldn't get enough of the place.
Things have changed since '93.

1993 g 69:
A dead forest east of Mount Saint Helens. On this November day in '93, I
attempted to drive a loop around Mount Rainier seeing the sights as I went.
Additionally, I attempted to make it to Windy Ridge near St. Helens for a hike
before dark. I barely made it, but it was a loong day.

I remember leaving Windy Ridge after dark. I hadn't seen another car or
another person in hours. The low-gas warning light in the rental car
started blinking. I was 45 miles from the nearest gas station. I
thought I might have to spend a night stranded in the car...but lucky me made it
to the gas station running on fumes. (At the gas station, I think I
managed to put 13.5 gallons in a 13 gallon tank?).

After buying a car in Seattle in '95, I got to drive it across the country, home
to Illinois. In fact, I got to drive that car across the country 5 times.
Those trips were lots of fun. I used to be able to pack everything I owned
into the small hatchback and go. Here, I stopped in Badlands Nat'l Park.

Since I was very young, I had always wanted to visit Alaska. As an intern
in 1996, I believe I had a 3 day weekend over July 4. I jumped in the car
and headed north. I managed to make it to the official start of the Alaska
highway in Dawson Creek, BC. Unfortunately, 3 days is not enough time to
drive from Seattle to Alaska and back again.

1996 g 61:
I ski'd in Blackcomb on August 1, 1996 (mainly just to say I had ski'd on August

3 months later for the next season.

On the way back from Seattle to Illinois, I stopped at Ellsworth AFB, just
outside of Rapid City, South Dakota. This was an interesting place.
I remember it was very hot this day (100+ degrees). In the parking lot at
the AFB, I discovered my engine coolant was boiling....I had to do a quick
repair of the cooling system in the parking lot and stop using the air
conditioning for th erest of the day.
