I started full time employment at the Library of Congress in the spring of 1966. In the ensuing years I've been a USAF Airborne Weather Observer, College Professor, Skydiving instructor, TV Weatherman, Insurance Salesman, Recruiter, NASTAR Pacesetter and Web lackey. Nearly half a century is enough. At the close of business this Friday afternoon I'm calling it quits.
My child bride (she's only 62) retired a few months ago, my three younger siblings have all retired and now it's my turn.
Nearly eight years ago I launched the online store for SuburbanSkiAndBike.com and it's been a wonderful ride. I'm turning over the reins to some very good people and I encourage you folks to continue to search for great gear there.
After attending my 50th HS reunion next month we plan on doing some traveling. In January we're kicking around the idea of a western road trip to Tahoe. We'll try to get up to Truckee to say hi to the good folks at the Start Haus. From there we'll spend some time near Breckenridge and then head to Snowmass for the NASTAR Nationals. Plans for 2016 involve the 440' Nevis Bungy jump in New Zealand.
I hope to lower my golf, ski racing, and snowboard racing handicaps and to devote more time to photography and art. See: pat-moore.artistwebsites.com
I've "met" a lot of nice folks on this forum over the past few years. Maybe I'll have the opportunity to "attach a face to the avatar" in the future.
