More about chavarriaz

My name is Fred and I am originally from Corpus Christi, TX.  I now live in Ketchikan, AK.  I moved from Texas to California when I was about twenty-six years old.  That's where I met my wife Tammy.  I had been in California seven days and she had been there one month.  We met on a blind date and here we are twenty-seven years later with two of the handsomest, smartest sons you will ever meet!  That's right, I'm bragging!

Ketchikan, AK is on Revillagigedo Island and is a city of about 14,000 people.  We have a total of thirty six miles of highway so riding a motorcycle here can get a little old pretty quick but it still beats driving a car.  This island is also smack dab in the middle of the Tongass National Rain Forest.  That means we average more than twelve feet of rain per year.  While people in the lower forty-eight states measure rain by the inch and we measure by the foot!

This year, 2014, I am 54 years old and it's damn high time to start getting on with some of these adventures I promised myself when I was younger and broke.  One of my sons said that getting a motorcycle was a "mid-life crisis" kind of thing but I had to explain to him that is more of a finally can afford a motorcycle since I chased my children out of the house kind of thing!

So here we go with this blogging thing.  My intent is to blog my adventures as I create them!  The nice thing about this blog is that it will allow me to inexpensively print my adventures as books so my children and future grandchildren and I can read them when I am old or they can read them when I am gone.
