Nothing beats a good old fashioned roadtrip - visiting long lost friends and re-connecting!

Hanging with the Verderames in Vegas. Bart cut his hair, quit listening to heavy metal, and otherswise gave up sticking it to the Man. Now the General Counsel of a hot company with a lovely family, he is the Man.

Visiting Kevin Walbrick (HBS bud and all-around great guy) in Austin, Texas - where Kevin lives the high life and is a highly sought after batchelor!

Catching up with UNC swimming star and former Andersen CPA turned father of two Ryan Schwanke in Dallas. Ryan is still a yankee at heart and hasn't picked up a drawl yet...

I was able to spend quality time with David Hennekes - who now lives in Dallas but once fluttered around Chile as a Peace Corps guy (not to mention his multiple degrees from Charlie Weis U). I'll join David and his friend Glenn in a Kilimanjaro attempt in Feb 2008!

It was a treat to see Jarred Pauwels holding fort in the Quad Cities (Moline, Illinois & Betandorf, Iowa). Left is the agricultural tractor Jarred supervises by day; Right is the beautiful family that supervises Jarred by nite.

I was able to see Axel Grippo and his lovely wife Clara in Milwaukee. Native Argentines, they are not exactly in love with the Wisconsin winters, but they sure have started to eat a lot of cheese!

Chicago brought great luck - giving me the chance to see Bill Tuebo (and his family - left) and visit with the Bobowski's on the right!

In Peyton Manning country, I hung out with David & Christy Kogan, pictured with their well-behaved and intelligent daughter Gracie. She is indeed the apple of David's eye.
