    What were you doing 50 years ago (1969)?

    Fresh home from Nha Trang- after my last trip (thank God!) on the S/S Copper State. I went down to Mobile AL and bought me a 250 Enduro.
    I thought I was a bad dude- and I even had hair on my head!

    !969 was my first real concussion, went over the bars of my Honda CT70. My brother found me unconscious along the trail a couple hours later.....just a preview of things to come. ...good times!

    I was in IV Corp, Vietnam with the 9th Infantry Division, based out of Dong Tam.

    Where has the time gone?

    Second child was born in November 68 and I was trying to cope as a new home owner and was amazed at the moon landing.

    I was still a little kid, but I had hair (and still have it). I'm not near as old of most of you old windbreakers.

    I remember watching the moon landing here coming up, but I do not remember the circumstances (where, when, etc.). I'll have to ask my brother. He's a couple years older and would remember.
