  1. Well, they got me off my ass to split from Texas and go El Salvador in 1976 (and meet Bob Levy and others) — and then come back a year later to witness the whole Big Wednesday spectacle. Not too bad, as things go.

    And, Neil, your SNRB from Mike Eaton (written about by you in some odd surfer style magazine from the mid-1980s that I can barely remember) set me off on 20 + years of bonzers with Mike. Nice.
