Now boondocking in the Hot Well Dunes BLM campground, Arizona

That's becaues, in the digital age, the amount of data available is only going to   continue to grow exponentially. And we'll need data scientists to set up the systems required to glean insight from all that information.

Quick to Make Friends and Reach the Finish Line, Road King Kenny Safford was Drag-Racing Royalty

Author’s note: Kenny Safford passed away in 2014 at the age of 72. He is high on my list of heroes. He could outwork several ordinary men, so he accomplished much.
