I was a goodwill ambassador in Ukraine and was on a Romanian television show-drunk off my ass doing an arm in arm sing along with the show hostesses-one of which has been in the Romanian edition of Playboy.Pretty wild for an Iowa farm boy.I bet she still brags about it too.
Canoe Now-Work Later.The worst day spent outdoors always beats the best day at work. 100 years from now,no body is going to remember if you were at work that day or not. Fuck 'em. Just Say Huck It!
What Gives Me Hope
That most people outside of the U.S. don't hate the American people-they just hate George Bush.As long as PEOPLE can still get along,maybe we will find a way out of this mess.Maybe.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Resign from office and go kayaking.
I hate politicians.
What/who changed my life and why
John Crystal-he was an expert on Russia and Eastern Europe who gave a speech prior to my groups departure for Ukraine.Basically he said not to be a dick because we might be the only Americans that some of those people would ever meet and the impression that we left them with might be how they view all Americans.
"Make men visualize for themselves all mishaps that can happen. This will frighten them at the time but will make the actual operation seem like a picnic. Do not mistake lack of imagination for courage-men without imagination nearly always lose their heads when exposed to unexpected danger or difficulty."-Major Blondie Hasler(Royal Marine/Cockleshell Hero)

New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights. ~Hamilton Wright Mabie
