Tales from a Modern Day Drifter

About Edd

Descended from pioneer stock.

My grandfather built this house out of sod, on the prairie of eastern Colorado. It is where my mother was born. The homestead near Rush Colorado was hit bad by the dust bowl, so grandpa moved the family to Colorado Springs. 

Military  years

Drifting years

Backpacking along the Rhine River in Germany 1980. This was the last summer I spent stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army. My roommate Mark Besch and I thought it would be great adventure, it was. It was my second overseas assignment the first one was in Korea.

The Trucking years.

Many of my writing projects have begun while traveling the country as a truck driver. Along the way I have met some interesting people and heard some of the lesser known legends of the western states.
