Overview

This essay is about flying to flight service stations (FSS) when they were spread across the nation at small, country airports, until the 1990s when they were combined into several large flight service centers. In the old days, you could fly to an FSS on Christmas Eve in the middle of nowhere, and there would be the attendant in the cozy room, ready to provide any information you needed about weather conditions, just talk for a bit, get warmed up, take a potty break, get a drink from the water fountain, and sit and relax before taking off on your next leg.

He earned a pilot’s license and became a flight instructor, teaching part-time (1976 - 2004). He was employed in information technology departments of several Denver banks and worked as a consultant for Perot Systems, Accenture, and Computer Sciences Corporation. He was Assistant Director of the Forney Museum of Transportation in Denver, Colorado (2009 – 2011) where he developed web pages of automobile museum collections at barthworks.com. Since 1961 he has written short stories, both fiction and non-fiction, and is a speaker. He has traveled extensively while pursuing his interests in photography and writing.
