    Ok guys, I'm over due for an update here so let me get over this next weekend at the ABATE Spring Opener and I'll start this thread up again. Didn't mean to leave you all hanging on this but been busy with the trip over to Idaho then the Redwood Run that wore my ass out and the other little short runs in between. Now that I'm recuperated I'm leaving in the morning again. But it's a relatively short trip. :D

    Coming up: Did I win 2 First Place trolphies with this new bike?????????

    Good story but you're not old . We must have passed in the night somewhere. Oakland and Fresco 1969-1972 left in haste. No pictures no diary. No statute of limitations.

    Haven't updated this thread since I retired from the Navy years ago. Guess I will have to get back to it.

    I need to go back in and fix some of the pictures that don't fit from when we changed servers a few years back and a lot of pictures got scrambled around.

    Ray, have never meet you but your stories posted are very enjoyable.
    Thank you for your service as well, as you are a true Patriot.
    I also can relate to those days of where am, what time is it, how did I get here and how do I get home from here.
    God bless and thank you.

    Great reading. I noticed clear back on pg 1, that you were on the USS Seawolf. Is this the same sub that is at Seawolf Park, down be Galveston, TX?
