I am the guy that convinced Robert Plant to sing an Elvis song at karaoke night in Playa.

Harold, that is super cool!

The things that seem to surprise people the most are- I can drive a tractor, forklift, grain truck, and combine....I used to love camping and have been hunting and shot a deer... and that I used to have a motorcycle. I know that is more than one, but those are things that always seem to surprise people. Maybe because I am a bit of a princess now.

I know the feeling. I get the odd look when they find out I took ball room dancing, play piano, collect guns and build/drive sports cars. Sort of an odd combo!

Oh and I testified at a Murder Trial!

Something to do with not having the required permits and really really good LSD.

I'm also almost sure that Henry Fonda followed me all the out and he was riding a mule

That's Mossy rock a Tacoma city light Dam, we were inspecting the bucket area for erosion. he bucket is where the water lands after going over the spillway, it's 250 feet deep and has to be inspected every 5 years. The working depth of the sub was 600 feet. We did inspections on most of the city and state owned dams in Washington. we couldn't work federal because we lacked required certification.

I was going to say that I was on the Bozo Show, but then I was reminded by previous posts...

I got caught skinny dipping in Barry Gibb's pool.
