I am an adventurer. It doesn't pay much but it can be pretty exciting.

I designed scientific instruments (spectrometers) for biochemists, mostly DNA analyzers. Biochemists want to know what DNA is in the bottle and how concentrated it is. The easiest way to find out is to dye the target DNA with a fluorescent dye and measure the fluorescence. They hire physicists like me to get the optics to work. For the last 12 years I was an independent consultant, doing computer simulations in my home office. I retired in October and want to experience the world directly rather than simulating it.

Now if your home theatre seats 500...

I'm going through my old posts and found this. I never saw it and I REALLY want to share my theater:

Meant to do this a while ago..actually had thought--mistakenly--that I already had.

I've attempted to post some photos from my first 2 trips to Nunavut to work. Had a fantastic time and will leave again soon for another 8 week assignment.

The photos are in an album in my profile-thingy.

For us (Kevin A and CindyL), we've been in education our whole working lives. I taught elementary school and coached high school sports for 11 years. Then, I was an Iowa regional consultant, a district curriculum director, a college assistant professor, an assistant superintendent, and now a district superintendent of schools just outside Chicago. Cindy has been a secondary teacher, special education consultant, and college associate professor in special education and technology for instruction. This is year 40 for us and retirement is still about 5 years away. We camp when we can!

Hi Kevin and Cindy,

I'm a teacher also! I've been teaching both fifth and fourth grade for 15 years. Prior to thIs, I was a board certified lactation consultant, bank teller, veterinary nurse, passenger service agent for British Airways in London and full time US Army soldier.

Not to mention my best and most fulfilling career: proud momma of two grown kiddos. A daughter who's 23 in college and a son who is 20 and presently at Sheppard AFB in Texas proudly serving our US Air Force!
