I work with a brilliant group of aerospace design and stress engineers from China, Italy, Israel, India, Spain, Iran, Czech Republic, Romania, Nepal and even the Republic of Texas (and a few native Californians of course).

I don’t grasp the gritty intrigue that I have had over the decades of Gallup, New Mexico – but the railroad line running parallel to the main drag, smack dap in Native American culture may have something to do with it. I want this place, someday, to be home base for a month or two […]
