About Me
I retired from law enforcement with the National Park Service ASAP (age 52) and not much money, and 3 days later was in Peru. I traveled for one year in South America, and then met my wife in Thailand. She was a computer engineer, and it took awhile for me to convince her to travel with me. We traveled for about 6 years in 21 countries in Central/South America and Asia. Now we are back in the U.S. for a few years, she became an RN, and soon will leave again.
