June 1998: Colleen and I got tired of Celina and decided to move to Illinois. We ended up finding a place in Alton. Here are a few random pictures from 1998, mostly all from after we moved…

My entire year of 1997 was spent living in Celina, Ohio with Colleen and Emily. We moved to Celina in November of 1996. Here are a few random pictures…

Around October of 1996, Colleen and I were still living in Albany, Oregon but looking for a few apartments in nearby Corvallis. After awhile, plans changed and we suddenly decided to move out of state. We decided on Celina, Ohio and spent about 5 days driving. We made a pitstop in Illinois to visit my parents and then continued to Ohio.

  • Your employment history and experiences with the Authorities make you an idol to me. Likewise your previous off-the-grid living. However, I must admit that I’m somewhat perplexed by the fact that a guy who can phreak telcos doesn’t know how to fix a car.

    Your addiction to Pepsi (broke mine five or so years back) and the cleverness demonstrated by the construction of a computer desk using only stolen milk crates tells me we’ve got something in common. I’m happy to have read of your exploits. Thanks for posting them.

  • Man I haven’t talked with you in like 11 years. Good to see your still having adventures (Well as much as one can in his 30’s) and enjoying life to it’s fullest. Keep on Trucking dude.

  • Chuck, who are you? How did I know you?
