Day-to-day operations. I make sure that people can sell tickets. I control people’s Internet access. I handle 1,200 phone numbers, program the phone switch and I un-jam the printer. I don’t have a glamorous job, but I enjoy it because I understand it. Plus, I get a pass.

About two years ago I liberated a lobster from a Hawaiian-themed party and he became my travel companion. When I can’t travel I send him off with other people, and with the help of a friend I created a Web site for him called He’s been to Mexico, Niagara Falls, Costa Rica, Germany, Montana and he unfortunately missed a recent cruise in the Greek isles because he was in Florida. He’s looking to travel with you, and the Web site has all the information you need if you want to take him with you.

A hot air balloon ride with my family ” for my grandma’s 81st birthday. We went about 1,000 feet in the air sight-seeing over Tracy, which is basically a gravel pit. But the whole idea was to learn the dynamics of travel in an air balloon.

Lime Gap ’07. An epic historic event, hopefully to be repeated this year. A good friend of mine built a ski jump in his driveway, and through a collaborative group effort, we finished the jump and ramp to where we could jump over the entire driveway. Then the coup de gras was pulling a lime green 1977 Volkswagen Rabbit into the middle of it.

The first day of fish tacos at Sunnyside. I love it, but after the first day it gets too busy to go again. That and the fact that happy hour will start again so you can eat reasonably in Tahoe.
