    So, I took a peek at your resume…and you don’t sound anything like a software engineer. You get out way too much.

    What’s been your favorite place to visit?

      Jeez man, I can’t think of a single place that’s been better than any other.

      I do love the natural Hot Springs though – and Dewar Creek was the best of those that I’ve been to.

      Thanks for the comments!
