Been on this forum for years and totally forgot to fill this out :(
I am turning 73 yrs. young in 02/18. I am a retired builder of everything plus I spent 30 years as a supervisor in a local piston ring factory. I became infatuated with experimental aircraft in 1971 and have built 4 since, about 2/3 done with my 5th. I went to a craft show about 6 years ago and saw my first cedar strip sea kayak and decided I needed to learn that too. Currently have a biplane and Petrol side by side in the shop.
Jane and I have 5 kids, 3 boys, two girls. All married with 7 grandkids and 6 great grandkids and, yes, my hair is totally grey :)
