Rick is a former military Non-Commissioned Officer serving twenty-six years in the United States Air Force in Combat Communications, the White House Communications Agency and as the Communications Flight chief for the 302nd Tactical Airlift Wing. Rick has served the Missile Defense Agency as a Security Engineer and Electronics Technician.
He has been a communicator, military trainer, college teacher and contractor, and has worked with his family over the last 40 years to develop survival skills in the children and now the grand children, spouses and other family and friends. Rick has traveled extensively having visited approximately fifty countries, including islands in the South Pacific, Caribbean, and five continents.
Rick's hobbies include Sailing, Amateur Radio, Amateur Astronomy, building and shooting bows and arrows, hiking, sword fighting and writing. Rick does not consider himself to be "an expert" in all forms of survival but has a "Jack-of-All-Trades" knowledge in many fields. He believes that being an expert in only one field of experience is limiting to the individual, while having even some small knowledge in many fields, however rudimentary that knowledge might be is more helpful.
Rick and his wife, JoAnne live aboard the Sail Ketch "Adventure" traveling around the US East Coast, Bahamas and Caribbean.
