Why do I do what I do?

Just about exactly three years ago I started this website.  Or should I say I amended and restated this site.  At that time, I felt compelled to feature a rather lengthy introduction and welcome on the home page.  Thought it was a good Idea at the time, as the saying goes.  Time marches on and I thought it looked a bit tacky so it was time for a remodel; I wanted something simple and I think I achieved “simple” with the latest look but don’t ask me why I changed it.  But unlike brick and mortar construction, I didn’t have to throw it away; I just moved it to here and saved it for posterity.  Someday I may want to change it back.  I don’t know why.

Welcome to my website. Dedicated to those who pursue all that is impractical, illogical and immoral, and flying, which sometimes all go hand in hand.

This current website is a “restatement” of an earlier site first published in 2009.  That site, put together with an obscure piece of software long since extinct, consisted of a random collection of photos and not much else, devoid of a theme or purpose.  My first choice was to continue to modify the old site, but upon losing the administrator password I learned that even the best of the best at GoDaddy couldn’t revive the failing patient; the old site was toast and the new one emerged from the ashes on August 4, 2016.


I learned to fly with the understanding that I would never use it for anything useful other than having fun; I have not been disappointed and with this site, I will recount some of the more memorable moments. Why?

Damned if I know.
