Comments:

Joined the Peace Corps and was sent to Honduras in 1964. Turned out to be a seminal life experience. Married Betsy in 1972 and was a Spanish Speaking Social worker for seveal years while she taught high school.
Moved from our ranch in Morgan hill back to Menlo Park to start our family in 1976.
I took a job as a commercial/industrial salesperson with C&C in Palo Alto. Became a partner in the new Commercial Company and enjoyed helping to build it into a powerhouse. Wonderful having been a part of the early Silicon Valley.
"Retired" to start a new career growing cabernet grapes in Napa Valley in 2000. Went back to school at Napa Valley College for a degree in Viticulture in 2005.

We are proud to grow premium cabernet sauvignon on our ranch here in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Life is very good!

School Story:

Hiking and more recently, bicycling have been some of the hobbies I enjoy. I have ridden a bike across country 3 times now, most recently, in 2011 from San Diego to St. Augustine, Fla.
In 2013 walked the Camino de Santiago across Northern Spain.
In 2016 plan to bicycle across country again. This time from Bar Harbor to Anacortes, Wa.
Did it! 4,000 miles in 76 days. Must admit, it's getting tougher.

What's the farthest you've been from home?

Provedenia, on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the north
and Antarctica in the south.

Kilimanjaro to the east and Tibet to the west.

In May of 2013 I will leave to walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain solo.

In May of 2016 I began my third bicycle ride across country, this time the 4200 mile Northern Tier from Bar Harbor to Anacortes, WA. Yesterday passed the 1000 mile mark in Port Stanley, Ontario. Should be home mid August. Cheers!

Dear friends and classmates,
Thank you all for your caring words of support and encouragement. Betsy and I had to evacuate earlier in the week as the fires began to surround us. We lost power first, and the internet as the transmitter towers burned around us. We, along with Roberto and Ruben, plowed firebreaks around all structures. Our defensible space philosophy added to our ability to protect as best possible the house, barn and vineyard. Fotunately the winds changed just in time and pressure was variable for several days. The pressure now has moved north to Oakville and Rutherford, but.sufficient assets are in place to hold the fire down until the rain arrives on Thursday. Betsy and I are both thankful for the dramatic response from over 9,000 firefighters from many lands who came together in fighting what has grown gone, at 200,000 acres, the most devastating conflagration in California history.

Hi Liz, It was great spending the evening wiith you at the delightful reunion dinner. You were curious about our trip to Papua New Guinea. It was terrific and made so because of our tour guide who has been returning for over 30 years. His name is Greg Stathakis and his email is mgreg@cox.net. Please get in touch with him and use our names as references. Enjoy! Betsy and Steve Moulds
