About Me:

I am a man who has lived a life of adventure on 6 of the 7 continents. I now live in Northern California but South Africa always has a special place in my heart.

I have been quiet for the last few days and with good reason. I have been involved in a big project to get all of our photos,videos, music, and critical documents to the cloud.

We all have had appliances and equipment in the house "crash." In the good old days you called a great repair man like our repair man of 60 years ago-Cecil Hall.

This past weekend I saw the film The Big Short, based on a book by Michael Lewis about how a few hedge fund managers read the tea leaves correctly and shorted the housing market before the 2008 financial collapse.

   You are so lucky to be sailing on this beautiful sea with its calm green waters (unless a big storm hits.).

Had he lived, my father, Vasco L. Walters, would have been 100 years ago today. Sadly he left us in January of 1976 at age 60 due to emphysema.

My dear friends 74 years ago today, Japan attacked the US Navy base at Pearl Harbor and started World War II between the US, Japan, and Germany.

I had quite an adventure yesterday. I rode a bus out of town to a dock area on Lago Argentino that is the largest lake in Argentina.

If you are a purist you would say that somebody only truly reaches the bottom of the world when they go to the precise center of the South Pole.

I spent many years if my life in Houston. It feels like a Houston winter with temperatures in the 30's a fierce wind blowing, and rain. It's a tough life for the 80,000 people who call this place home.

It is almost six in the morning here in Ushuaia and it's snowing.

My dear friends I am heart broken about what happened in Paris and in Kenya.
