Comment to this post if you want some homework from me...I will give you five subjects/things I associate you with. Then post your homework on your own blog.

Anipike - Wow, has it really been eight years ago? Back in 2000 I found a gig doing anime reviews for the anipike website. I always have been interested in animation and continue to expand my collection to this day. Even after stopping the review process I still stop by the chat every so often and of course toon radio ;). The people are fun to talk to and I still enjoy visiting.


Geocatching(Geocaching)- Geocatching (verb) - To stand in the area of imminent impact and try and catch the asteroid before it lands. Heheheh, Geocaching is an activity that I really enjoy, wither it is with others or just charging of on my lonesome. It really helps when I go to a new place to learn some history or just find cool places to visit. It is always fun to go with someone that never has done the activity before and watch their face as you point out there are things hidden everywhere.

The Navy - Well, was working nights and going to college during the day and it finally got to the point where I had to apply for food stamps in order to provide for basic needs. Then a call came from my mother saying that some policeman wanted to talk to me from another town. The "policeman" was a Navy recruiter who I asked "What can you do for me?". Currently visiting places I've only read about and doing things that I never thought I would do so I guess you could say it was a good choice.

Traveling - Even before the navy I would do 200 dollar road trips. Traveled to Washington State, AlaskaOhio, Michigan, California and a crossed Canada and had a blast so I guess you could say that the travel bug has a firm hold on me. Through the Navy I've been to Florida, Illinois, Bahrain, Dubai, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Africa and South Korea. After I get out I still intend to hit Europe, Scotland, Ireland, Iceland, and Porto Rico and maybe even South America so I fully intend to keep it going to see new sites and meet new people.

Home buying - At first it was just grueling trying to find a good house to purchase, arrange a loan, and pull the funds together to get it all rolling. I am pretty sure that without the help of my girlfriend pushing me to get it done I still wouldn't have one. I will have to say that now that I have a home to call my own it is awesome. I am a little sad that I only got to see it for two weeks before having to leave again but it will be nice to be able to go back and get it built up the way that I want it to be.

I've traveled the King's Highway from Montana to Michigan. I have done a lot of traveling in Saskatchewan (Rose town, Ragina, Cedar Creek) for paint ball. During my trip up to Alaska when I turned sixteen we traveled the Alaska Highway and had a grand time going up the western coast. One thing is for certain, I will never enter Winnipeg by choice ever again...;). Did a bit of tourist travel through there and the cramped nature of the entire city just drove me away.
