After graduating from West Point in 1975 I spent 24 years as an Engineer Officer. Retired in 1999 for 4 days and went to work for the Municipality of Anchorage as the Director of Building Safety. Left that job in 2ooo to go back to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Alaska District as a DA Civilian. Deciding three times is a charm, I retired for good in Oct. 2016 at the age of 63. I was able to return to my home in Anchorage in 1997 for my final assignment in the Army and was thus able to hunt and fish with my Dad until he died in 2017 at the age of 89. Now my time is occupied by my boat in Prince William Sound in the summer and chasing waterfowl during the winter with some travel thrown in to keep my Queen happy! I plan on going to Africa in the next couple of years. I acquired a granddaughter to train last March so she keeps me excited thinking about the adventures we will have together!
Congrats and enjoy! Do you run out of Whittier? I ran out of Valdez for quite a few years.
Yes, for the most part. Boat is a 26-foot Wooldridge. Tows very easily. I can be at the Whittier Tunnel in less than 60 min. from my house. We tend to stay pretty much in western Prince William Sound.
