Paul Wetzel, 38, CH-47F pilot in the US Army. First batches were extract brews in 1998 when I lived in Lake Charles, LA where "good" beer was Miller Lite. Moved to Vegas in 99 where there was good beer, so no need to brew anything. I caught the bug again 2 years ago during my previous deployment to Afghanistan, and brewed close to 120 gallons in the year I was home. This deployment should end in a couple months or so, and I have lots of plans for lots of brews.
Tomorrow will be 19 years since my first skydive, which I did professionally for a year and a half during my break in military service. I'm up to 3500 jumps, 2200 of which have been as a tandem instructor.
Currently stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC and deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan. 4 1/2 years until I can retire and live off my pension and my awesome physical therapist wife's paychecks. Such lofty goals, I know.
I mountain bike and geocache for fun.
That's all I have to say about that.
