Welcome - 

I thank Ernest Hemingway for "What Reward, without Risk?"  I thank Edward Abbey for his wisdoms that kept the rebel spirit alive: "Resist Much, Obey Little".  Valued input from two of the great writers.  I thank Sammy Freeman and Adnan Khashoggi for their lessons and guidance regarding life and business; wisdoms utilized throughout my life.  Never a dull moment.  I cannot imagine life without continual challenges. 
Chronicling The Wild that Remains is one reason for taking risks while obeying nature's rules tied to wilderness.  It allows me to exhibit our wild and open spaces, with photographs and words.  
Buffalo and Wild Mustangs continue to roam the deserts, desolate canyons and plains.  Wild they may be, gentle they are, unless threatened.   For two years I lived in Moab, Utah, to be closer to the wild that remains.  After two years of roaming the Colorado Plateau, that endless road back to my Holladay home; white-line fever has subsided, but I am not immune to that virus.
One philosophy I have dispelled: "You can never go home again"; simply incorrect. All roads lead back home when you are ready to follow the road home.  I thank the spirit who helped guide me home after years on the road, roaming the wild, as my soul I finally did find.

The road rolls on forever...
Landsberg am Lech, Bavaria, Germany is where it all began.  
 On Dec. 11, 1981, when   America's biggest   Ballroom was being   turned into a Parking   Lot, I promoted  the   Farewell Party for the   world-renown concert   venue, the Terrace Ballroom.   'A  Farewell to the Terrace' was the  Queen's last event.
Well known Salt Lake City architect, Peter Emerson, created the poster.
Claudia Appling, aka Montana Rose, opened the show with Joni Mitchell's Yellow Taxi, and today, The Terrace remains a parking lot.  Cow Jazz played one hell of a concert and fun was had by all.

The Terrace Ballroom's Curtain Call -
EAS is a life-saving technology I invented and funded with promises from the U.S. DOT of reimbursement, but when the Sec. of Transportation was changed, all those promises left with him, along with the interest in this technology.
I was going to delete it, but felt it significant enough to leave in place.
