BioDiesel: I’ve been running ASTM D6751-09 Biodiesel in my ’05 RAM Diesel 2500 for about two years. I purchase my biodiesel at a distributor and
mix the ratio I want directly in my tank with noproblems to date. My primary objective was to reduce dependency on foreign sources as much as possible while reducing my net CO2 footprint. I had sites listed here, but your search will find them anyway. I also plan to run Bio in my BJ42 as soon as I get it back on the road.

Life is Interesting: So much so that I needed one last page to host those other “interests” that have not fallen neatly elsewhere. This site continues to evolve over time and I hope to add new features, such as Wikis and areas for comments, but time will tell.

Mt Washington: I have had an interest in Mt. Washington, its weather, and record-setting high winds for many years for years. Then, not of my own doing, but rather through coincidence, Craig Haddow enticed me to travel with him to climb Mt. Washington on Feb. 2, 2002. We all survived and managed, barely, to avoid getting frostbite.  Thanks again though for convincing me to come along. This site was founded and is maintained by Paul LoSacco, a great guy and long-standing personal and business friend. Paul was my boss about 20 years ago, and has been a friend every since.

Lander Wyoming: Is one of many wonderful towns that I enjoy out west, which happens to be close to Red Canyon, a great canyon area on the outskirts of Lander, see the photo to the left. Lander is also the home of the International Climber’s Festival and is just 7 miles from Sinks Canyon State Park, where a river disappears into the side of the mountain. Other points of interest: there are more than 40 Peaks in Wyoming over 13,000 feet; Lander is roughly 3 hours from Yellowstone and the Teton’s Jackson Hole area; The International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race starts in Jackson Hole and runs through Lander; the Pioneer Days Parade and Rodeo is held every July 3rd and 4th. This is the oldest paid rodeo in the world according to Lander. Check out the Lander town WebCam if interested.

Frank Fiascki: For any of us that were victims of the Frank Fiascki’s Ponzi Scheme, I maintain a few links here so you can readily check up on Frank. As a matter of record, Frank was sentenced on March 12, 2004 to 10 - 20 years in prison, followed by 20 years of probation. This sentence was later reduced to 8 - 16 years. Frank was also ordered to pay restitution to his victims. Here are several links to keep everyone up to date:

The above photo was taken in the early 90s while standing near the Snake River, overlooking the Grand Tetons in Wyoming.

Toyota Landcruiser, FJ40s, BJ42s, FJ60/62s:

I have enjoyed these old landcruiser for years and at one point had a small business restoring them. I still do this type of work, but the pace is rather slow and mostly for family enjoyment.

The FJ45 in the picture to the left was of my all time favorite vehicles.
