Thinking he would go up and have a quick adventure then return to a "normal" job, he left Seattle and headed north with his brother in search of an escape from the boredom of normal life. Fifteen years later and now Captain Harris he is still at it and loving every minute of it. "I work 4-5 months a year and make a great living. I spend more time with my wife and kids than any other father I know. I cant imagine working another job or living another life. Why would I, I love what I do."
