Obtained my first interview. In Lassen National Forest, the first place I stayed, I woke up and went over to the closest campsite. I had to build up the courage, but it turns out the most talkative guy in the group is a professor of systems science. Don’t know what that is yet, but he was more than willing to get the ball rolling. Through this first interview I was able to get a better, clearer picture of what it is I’m trying to create. This group of brothers and a sister (one honorary brother) were on a motorcycle trip that they take annually. They grew up in Alaska, and told me a bit about their lives. That alone was worth the stop.
