Ok, thank you all for your intelligent conversation and your hospitality.
I will be in and out here chating with you all periodically.
Some history on myself:
I go by "Hansolo" because my name is Hans... and I USED to be single... get it? Now, even though I'm married with a son, I still use it in forums and such (my Wife is cool with it... I think?)
Anyway, I grew up my whole life in Colorado Springs, Colorado until I was 20. At that time (1992) I joined the U.S. Coast Guard and found myself on a ship stationed out of the San Francisco Bay Area. I have ALWAYS been a Bronco fan (even through the tough times... ie. Super Bowl XXIV... 49er's 55... Broncos 10).
I was living in Oakland when we finally won our championships. After the second against the Falcons, I got in my little blue Ford Tempo and drove around Oakland with a Broncos flag flying from the antenna...
And no, I did not get shot at...
So, I still live here (but not in Oakland), playing everyday with the idea of someday moving the family back to good old Colorado!
