11/26/2017 "Then and Now" Photos
Hi and Welcome! Our class web page has a place for both "Then" and "Now" photos. Virtually all of 1973 Pinole Valley Alumni have their high school photos posted on the web site. We have po

After graduating PVHS, I wasted a bit of time. Like in the Pink Floyd song, I was "kicking around on the same old ground in the hometown." I was going no where, and I knew it.
In desperation, I joined the US Navy. This turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Who would have thought this from the silly guy in the silver shoes and top hat? But, it really just kick started what I call "the real life". It got me out to where I became productive. I served as an air traffic controller for four years. During this time, I became a pilot, traveled Europe by way of the North Atlantic, North Sea, and Med.
After the navy, I finished school and became a civil engineer for the State of California. In June 2009, after holding a job for 26 years, I retired from The State. The last five years of the career, I was involved with the seismic retrofit if the Richmond/ San Rafael and the San Francisco Bay Bridge, West Approach.
Like many of us, I married and divorced after ten years, but never had children. It was a good ten years with no regrets. We had simply grown in different ways, and on a friendly and caring note, we went separate ways.
In 2001, I was flying to Lithuania to visit some friends for Christmas. On the flight to Amsterdam, I sat next to a scientist who lived and worked in the SF Bay Area, and who was flying home to visit her mother in Germany. This was my beloved wife, Elisabeth. We sat next to each other on the plane and have been joined at the hip since then. We married in Honolulu a few months later. The past 12 years have been the best of my entire life. Lucky me, lucky us.
Elisabeth and I are now long-distance sailing together. In September 2009, we left San Francisco on our 41 ft. Swan sailing boat. We have since visited Mexico, The Marquesas, Tuamotus, Tahiti, Niue, Tonga, Fiji, New Zealand, Fiji (again) , Vanuatu, Tarawa-Kirabati, and Majuro-Marshall Islands. We plan to continue around the globe, but are planning to stay in the South Pacific at least one more season. The Pacific is just...well, we just like it.
We would be honored to have you join us on our blog, (and in person should you be so adventurous)! We have a blog in which we document our adventures and travels with text, photos, position reports, etc.

Best to you all,
Rod and Elisabeth,
We are "Your Rock and Roll Argonauts"
