Trips we've taken
- Bordeaux, France (April 2001)
We took this trip with our friends Alex and Lauren and sampled some
amazing food and wine. Geek surprise: we found ourselves near 0º
longitude and 45º N latitude--halfway between the north pole and the
equator on the line separating the eastern and western hemispheres.
Naturally, we had to go find the exact spot with our GPS; this is
actually recorded at
- Yellowstone/Teton (September 2002)
- Hawaii (October, 2002)
Eric started flying in 1996, got his private pilot license in
1997, and his instrument rating in 1999.
In September of 2003, Eric got his Multi-Engine rating! This
means Eric can now fly airplanes with more than one engine!
In April of 2004, he got his Commercial rating. I think
that means I can now be paid to dust crops or tow banners.
And on Dec 26, 2004, he got his Seaplane rating.
In 2006, Eric completed his goal of landing at all public-use
airports in Washington State (there's about 140 of them). He's
working on Oregon now.
Here are some neat flying pictures:

We'll need to start filling this in more, but for now here are three
recordings from 1992, when Eric was playing with a band called "Angry
Neighbors". Eric plays lead guitar on all of these songs, and is
the voice of the latte-ordering fool at the start of "The Latte Song."
