JDR Life Lists
I was insprired
to write a Life List at age 16 by world explorer John Goddard (at right), who
lectured at our
high school once a year. Photo at left shows me at age 16 with Arizona
Senator Barry Goldwater at Camp
Cherry Valley on Catalina Island. Senator Goldwater encouraged me pursue
exploration of the Green and
Colorado Rivers. He was among the first 70 people to raft through the
Grand Canyon, back in 1940, before the
Second World War.
I am often asked
what my most memorable experiences have been, so I've
assembled another list ! It includes many things that weren't on my
list at age 16. This shows me in the Wadi Qelt above Jericho in the
summer of 1995.
