What have you been up to:

Flew twenty years for the US Navy (P3 Orions & T28 as flight instructor), a little Boeing 737 airline time for People Express Airlines in the 80's. 1993 started Alpha Flying, Inc purchasing, managing and flying corporate aircraft. Company became a leader in aircraft "Fractional Ownership". Left Alpha Flying in Dec 2003. I was burned out and had reached the point of being ineffective. Time for someone else to step in. In 2004 I bought an AutoQual franchise which did interior repairs for the used cars at name brand dealerships all around Eastern MA. I sold the business in 2013 and for the first time in 32 years I took the summer off and actually had a beach sticker on my truck. This summer I'm between opportunities so my wife encouraged me while I'm waiting for what's next that I look at a seasonal Cape Cod job, so I've been tending bar on the Hyline ferries between Hyannis and the islands and enjoying the hell out of it. Still looking for my next adventure and enjoying my grand-kids in the time being.
