I tired of my old multi-multi colored activities page and I am
working on thinking up something new. For the meantime, a quick
cobbling of a few links will have to do. What is worthwhile besides
education if you are spending >30k every year to get education,
whether in real costs or just lost opportunities? Well, Luke,
that's a pretty narrow view. So maybe I should be able to make
a living doing with something somewhat unrelated to engineering,
like maybe guiding trips, photographing, writing web pages, or
simply living off the land...
now, none of these choices appears likely as an alternate career
choice, but spending a few hours hiding in the Technique or Ashdown
dark room or a day or two hiking or climbing with the MIT
certainly helps to keep a reasonable outlook on life. Not to
mention that these places are hangouts for some really cool people.
I'd like to trek in Nepal, climb mountains in Patagonia, surf
soar in the Rockies, kayak in southern Vietnam, or dive on
I'd love to photograph beautiful
women , try my hand at Ansel Adam's like landscapes, or find
a quiet home on a mountain lake or a secluded ocean shore in
all that can come in time with enough patience and persistence
and will. For now I'll just go back to lab, where you can easily
find me most of the time among the many cool machines.
