I am a native of Oregon, where I grew up in the only city to get more annual precipitation than Syracuse! After bouncing around the West (Washington, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and even California), I moved to Central New York in 1992, and married my wife Christine soon after. We live in beautiful Bayberry in Liverpool with our dog Edgar and cat Zoe. Christine's son Kyle recently joined the Navy, and hopes to serve as a rescue diver. We love traveling around the Northeast as well as the US. I've been to all but 6 states (Alaska, Hawaii, Arkansas, Florida, Missouri and Oklahoma), while Christine has only 4 states she hasn't visited. I don't know how I will catch up, but I'm gonna sure give it a try!
