Shumway Aerospace

My model rocket getting ready to fly through the skies over Vancouver. This one was 6' long able to reach 1000' We were such rotten kids, usually taping the nose cone on rocket and/or launching them with extra booster engines so the rocket would go higher and drift in the wind up to a mile away, giving us an excuse to skip class and run throuth the streets of Vancouver, climb on random peoples roof tops et,. This launch landed on the Shumway school roof. The guy with the beard in the (desceased) instructor, Mr. Unterwagonner......

At the old shop

During the summer of 1984, I built this little wood boat which was never actually finished. The shop was located in the basement of one of Vancouver's original speak-easy's. Although there were some low ceilings, there were allot of interesting things built in this place, which at one time, during prohibition was used as a garage to hide cars from the street. The door in the background is 6 inches thick, something mom and I put together one weekend ......

Wandering around the Sierra Nevada

At the bottom of the Grand Canyon, June 1987

Among one of the toughest days of my life. We began at the rim around 6:00am, a friend and I ran for 9 miles to the bottom. Along the way to the bottom we encountered huge puddles of mule piss. Sometimes these would come up with no warning. I recall thinking to myself, JUMP ! At the bottom, we walked 1.5 miles upstream. Along the way I sawthe phantom ranch, a bridge and made a phone call from the telephone booth at the bottom. Going back up was one of the most miserable hiking trips I've ever done. It was 110 degrees, the water inside my canteen was always colder than the water available along the way. I had to use a few hiking tricks, such as keeping my shirt wet at all times, In that hot weather it's tough ona guy like me.
