Not All Classrooms Have Four Walls !!

In 1993 I met a good man who invited me into the whitewater kayaking world.From running the Snake and Salmon rivers in Idaho; the the Klamath, Rogue and Umpqua rivers in in Oregon, on to the McCloud (my favorite whitewater), Trinity, Truckee, American, King and Kern rivers in California, to the finale, the exciting and huge Futaleufu river at the Base of the Andes Mountains in Patagonia.I strongly advise everyone get a kayak in some whitewater at lest once in their lives!

There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.

As an army brat, born in Kansas, after two years we moved to Germany, Frankfurt and Pirmasens for four years. From there it was Missouri, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, and finally California.

Transferred to the San Francisco Bay area for business in 1984, I founded my own firm in 1985 in Burlingame. After a dozen years of success, I bought acreage in the Sierra foothills an hour from Lake Tahoe as I thought it was a better environment to raise a family on the 1849 Gold Trail!.

More On Harley-Davidson’s 100th Anniversary Celebration

As a member of the American Legion Riders, Steven has organized and participated in many charity rides.

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, “Wow what a ride!”

I’ve been riding big bikes since I was 19 years old. I’ve ridden my Harley through 80% of the great USA today not just to vineyards on weekends. In 2003 I rode to the 100th Anniversary party for Harley Davidson in Milwaukee. WI. In 2008, 2009 and 2011, I led a hand picked group of Veteran’s to Washington D.C. to be on the Wall for Memorial Day.

If you’d like to see the street view, look up the “Road to Thunder” video on Amazon, a Veteran’s documentary they made about your 2008 ride.
