Most Memorable Travel Experience
Sitting in a suana in La Paz Bolivia while having a bunch of naked mafia guys rubbing salt on me. How ackward, but man I had such soft skin for the next month.

My other one is when I was in Morocco and we were going to go smoke a shisha (like a hooka) with some people. Well our friend ended up taking us to the backroom of an empty cafe. Inside was a group of old guys ready to smoke it up. It was a great group, me and two american girls, our moroccan friend, and 4 old guys we didn't know. So we're smoking kind of staring at eachother ackwardly, and one of the guys gets out a gun and throws it on the table to freak us out! Well doing that really lightened the mood, the 4 guys were the storekeep, mayor of ifrane, the police chief, and some army guy. We had a great conversation about the war in iraq (started 9 months earlier, and started to go sour by that point), 9/11, US torturing iraqiis ect.... it was a conversation every american and person in the arab world should have, and if they did it would be a much better place.
I have just moved to chicago, and am excited about moving to the downtown area next week. Right now I live in the boring burbs. I am a traveling engineer working in large scale alternative to oil projects, and making oil refienery improvements. The point being is that if you live in an energy producing area I am coming your way.

My hobbies are brewing beer and coffee; travel (duh), and loving life.

Oh wow! Prince George...lucky you. Well at least you weren't stranded in Prince George. It's definitely changed over the years. Normally when I go over it's for a specific reason as it gets pretty expensive to get off the island, so surprisingly haven't really explored much.
