Profile Information

Profile Type:
Livermore, CO
About Me:
Here is a short bio on my life and times.

I was born in Binghamton, NY on January 1, 1938 and grew up there with my family in the same house for 20 years until I went away to college. I studied Engineering at Cornell University for a year and a half before joining the army on March 17, 1958 (same time as Elvis!). When I was discharged from the Army, my best friend and I ran an Esso Service Station for a year before I got married to Julie and decided to return to college at the University of Arizona in 1960. The year we were married, we had just moved to Tucson when I got a nice letter from President Kennedy that began "Greetings" and consisted of an invitation to rejoin the Army for the Berlin Crisis. I was assigned to Ft Gordon, GA for a year and then was discharged once more. We immediately moved back to Tucson and I started college again for the third time. At that stage of my life I was a new man and made the Deans List and graduated with a degree in Production Management with a minor in Accounting in 1964.

I went to work for my fathers company back in Binghamton for two years but had the itch to return to the West so I ended up in Boulder, CO where my wife Julie and I lived for the rest of our 13 year marriage and had two children, Mary and Tom. Julie wanted her freedom and divorced me in 1973 and I lived as a bachelor in Colorado until 1980 when I married Joy (with her daughter, Julie). We were married for 8 years (it should have been 8 months), moved back to Binghamton where we lived in the family house for 5 years while I worked as Data Processing Manager for a large construction company. The day came in 1986 when I could no longer take Joy's severe mood swings and I quit my job, moved to Florida and filed for divorce.

I have lived in Florida on one of many boats I have owned ever since, but in 1989 a lady from British Columbia, Laurie, answered my personals ad in Cruising World Magazine, came down to Florida to meet me, and everything clicked, so she moved aboard and a year later we were married to begin the happiest 13 years of my/our lives. I continued to work and also run my own software company until 1995 when I retired and we began semi-fulltime cruising on my boat. In 1998 we began building a house on Arrow Lake (a part of the Columbia River System) in British Columbia so we would have a home base near my wife Laurie's family and friends. In February 2003, Laurie passed away and I have been looking for someone special to spend the rest of my life with ever since.

So, that's my story and I'm sticking to it !!!!
Current location:
I sold my boat October 2008 and for the moment permanently reside in Colorado
Destinations visited:
East Coast of U.S., Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, St Martin
Looking to:
Find a new First Mate who likes to sail and is free to do so, or likes the Rocky Mountains and is free to explore them. (or both!!)

Hi Bill! Unfortunately, we are restricted to 'dirt sailing" (rving) for awhile. Stop by on your way to paradise. Always a coldie (beer) in the fridge.

On getting rid of these creeps, e-mail the site administrator. The ning softward allows them to Block both them and the isp they are sending from. Zap, theyre' outta here!

Fair seas buddy.

ps on my ning rv community site there are 2 guys in your area that are rvers who go to your Redfeather area. Might be interesting for you to get to know them for some camping trips? my "dirt sailing" site is
just do a search for Colorado and they'll pop up.
