Comments:

At 19 yo hitch-hiked six months all over Mexico (on four dollars). At 20 yo I worked for the forestry service in Wyoming in the Green Lake area of the Wind River Mountains and then wrangled sixty half broken horses across the Bridger Wilderness from Green Lake to Jenny Lake. Came back to the bay area and ran around with Kesey crowd and Neil Cassidy for quite awhile then hitch-hiked to the east coast and spent a year in New York as friend and helper to Allen Ginsberg. I hitch-hiked from Luxembourg to India in 1967 (then hitch-hiked back to Europe in 1973). I lived and traveled extensively for many years in Asia Europe, North Africa and Mexico. In India I worked with Frere des Homme (akin to the French peace corps) doing drought relief for one year in Bihar and studied Theravada Buddhism in Bodh Gaya and Tibetan Buddhism in Kulu Manali, India also spent several delightful winters in Goa. Lived and traveled for four years in Thailand and southeast Asia including one year in Bali. Went trekking in the Himalayas late 60s and had a pub in Kathmandu early 70s getting away as often as possible to trek the Nepalese Himalayas. Around 1970, I sailed a Chinese Junk around the South China Sea then crossed the Indian Ocean from Bali to the Seychelles on a 40 foot Choi Lee, later sailed around north Africa in several different sail boats and spent some time as a "guest" of the local government in Safi, Morocco. I lived in Mexico for fifteen years operating a tour company in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico for ten of those years. In the late 70s and 80s remodeled homes in the Bay Area then lived and worked as editor in Bolinas. Three years ago I married (for the first time) and am happily joined at the hip with Jean Wentworth (Bush) formerly of Berkeley, Concord, Mass. and San Francisco. I have a 28 yo daughter, Sophie Yeshi Guerin (mom's a Tibetan nun and close friend) who worked with the American embassy in Paris and just graduated from Science Politique, Paris in international relations and conflict resolution. She's now off to Beijing to live and work and a second daughter, Alejandra 14 yo, about to enter high school in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Jean and I have homes in Mill Valley, CA and San Miguel de Allende, MX and try to get off to our Echo Lake cabin near the entrance to the Desolation Wilderness in the high Sierras, as often as possible. Recently we returned from a fascinating trip sailing the south Turkish coast visiting ancient archaeological sites. In late May we returned from visiting my daughter in Paris where we caught the premier of "Midnight in Paris". Hopefully soon...off to Bali!

School Story:

Bored with high school, I dropped out after my junior year (1960) and joined the Air Force becoming a military policeman (prison guard) on Guam in the Marianas Island.
