About Me


My name is James and I am 67 years old. I live in Oregon, having moved here in 2007 when I retired. I am a native Californian, living the past 32 years in Eureka in far northern California.

I was a business owner, being a licensed independent insurance adjuster and a licensed private investigator. I have a BA degree from the University of California, Los Angeles and an MA degree from California State University, Los Angeles. Both degrees are in European history.

This site was primarily designed to document my Pennine Way walk, which I completed when I was 63, in 2004.
