Briefly, after HS I graduated from Univ of Miami, FL with BS and MA and ended up in the insurance business which got me transferred from Miami to Orlando to Chicago. In 1996 I moved to San Diego and started my own insurance business, CRES Insurance Services (www.cresinsurance.com). We currently stilll own the business and live in San Diego.
In 2002 I bought a 47' catamaran sailboat named PLAN 'B' and since then my then girlfriend, now second wife, and I have been spending 12-20 weeks a year slowly working our way around the world. We started in the Mediteranean, where the boat was built and I am writing this email in Raiatea French Polynesia (near Tahiti). Next week we depart on a sail from here to the Cook Islands, the Kingdom of Tonga and Fiji. We return to San Diego on July 1st.
We do plan to attend the reunion in August, I haven't been back to Darien or been in contact with anyone from our class except Randy Lunn since graduating so the reunion should be lots of fun.
