Don & Linda both grew up in central Florida, maturing a little in the 50's. Don was off to the University of Florida, and was shortly joined by Linda. After a 38 year career in power plant construction, maintenance, and modification in Florida - - and raising two daughters - - we retired in '98, still in central Florida. Since then we have routinely escaped the Florida summer heat for the cooler mountains of Colorado. The motor home provides comfort for several months away from home, and the jeep in tow provides for significant adventure on the many trails in areas we frequent. Our favorite places to spend some time away from home visiting family and friends include our daughters' homes in McKinney, TX and Cary, NC. Other favorite areas where we see friends, relax and ride jeep trails include Silverton, CO, Moab, UT, and Gunnison, CO.
