Other interests: The picture below is of me and my son taken near Paradise, Mount Rainier National Park on the RAMROD (Ride Around Mount Rainier in One Day) ride in July 2012. This is a 154 mile ride with 10000 feet delta elevation. Most scenic ride I have ever done, and also the most challenging on a tandem. In 2011, we volunteered and supported this ride with road support and communication. A lot of the route does not have cell phone coverage and the only means of communication is via amateur radio.
