Over-40, formerly rugged outdoors type of guy. I'm involved in Ultimate Frisbee and Kickball leagues (among others). I usually keep my gear in the trunk of my car all year long; Frisbee, B-Ball, kickball, fishing rods, deck of cards, and chess set.
Fishing, b-ball, Frisbee, biking.
Parasailing in Acapulco; the engine died "mid-sail"; I took a 10-story swan-dive into the bay (parachute slowed the decent to a survivable level). I had to choose to either swim 1/2 mile to shore, or 1/4 mile to the boat. Since I can't swim (without a life-jacket), I chose the shortest path. I had to hurry before the parachute got caught in the undertow, which would have carries me out towards the open sea. When I climbed onto the boat, Julio was spraying Ether onto the water-soaked Chevy in-line 6-cylinder engine!!! I wanted to strangle him! That's what you get when you take the "budget tour" instead of the one the hotel recommended.
Myrtle Beach for quick getaways. Although I plan to expand my horizons in 2013.
Will Peters; my brother from another mother.
Hello Barry, and welcome to OCS Charlotte! We're glad you're here, and I'll keep you updated on the Lake Norman event. Sometimes folks will cancel closer to time. Thanks!
Hey Barry, I was bummed I could not make day at the lake. I know it was fun! I will definitely be there for kickball! Hope to see you!
Hi Barry. It was nice meeting you also. I am planning to attend the kickball game. I will no longer be working with the same company, so no more traveling for me. I will be at alot more meetup events. See you soon.
B...maybe that shouldn't be coincidental, but I find it uncanny. Looks like we have similar thoughts too. I looked at the Hotwire, Hotels.com options just this morning, but didn't book anything. Still hoping I can get a deal on an ocean-front rental through VRBO or Homeaway first. If nothing comes through, probably go the hotel route.
Yup! I'm a loyal Pandora One listener (hipped me to Praful, NuLife, Fila Brazillia, 3rd Force, etc).
We'll get up.
Barry! Noticed some of your favorite artists (Four80East, Praful, Acoustic Alchemy, etc.) We seem to have similar tastes in music. Have you booked your rental yet? That was my plan too.
Hope to run into you sometime at one of the meet ups.
Grace and peace

Hey Barry i didn't think I would ever meet a fellow Brick City Native in the queen city I left Newark in 1989 I graduated from Barringer 1974 hope to meet soon at one of the meetups
Thank you. I am not practicing right now but my area of expertise is personal injury and workers' compensation.
Barry, that sounds like a plan.....
