One thing about Gary is that he was, and still is a thrill seeker. For example, when we discovered that the world did not blow up or shut down after Y2K, he decided we needed to find a retirement destination. We did. In Panama. We built a 4300 square foot house on the 9th fairway of a beautiful golf course, in a valley, that is just sitting and waiting on us. Its nicer than the home we live in....Can't afford to quit my job and move there.
We have been there several times. Twice when buying the lot and building and once since it was finished.
Here we are all "cleaned up" after the hike. The two Pitons in the background were not a hike we took that trip. Never will. After those seven days, we took a Windjammer Pirate Cruise through the West Indies with a bunch of crazy people.
