About me

Gender MALE
Industry Transportation
Occupation Hazmat Responder UPS
Location Newport News, Virginia, United States
Introduction I'm a 37 year old UPS employee, college student, Coast Guard reservist,amateur diver and general geek. I hope to study in Japan in a few years and I'd like to move to the overseas territories, especially Guam. I do lean a bit to the right politically.....but you knew that if you looked at my blog. I want to live long enough to walk on the Moon or Mars before I go. It is important to note that the views on this blog are my own and not those of UPS or the United States Coast Guard Reserve.

Favorite Books Ellison is one of my favorites. Jules Verne and ER Burroughs can do litle wrong. I read a lot of nonfiction but I have liked William Gibsons work, David Webers stuff especially the Honor Harrington series, and I have a soft spot for Lovcraftian nonsense both old and new. I've been reading a bit of Victor Davis Hanson recently.

What did you dream when you ate a spider while sleeping?

Oh THAT explains that dream!
