Rick not only loves ball games, but he loves the mountains. In fact, Rick has what I call a topographical map and GPS in his mind. I have never met anyone who can tell you the name of each mountain peak, hill or forest service road in a given region. I asked him one day how he knew so many details. He responded, "All you have to do is buy a map and study it."
A couple months ago, Rick said to me, "Kurt, could you take me up to the lake for a boat ride one more time? One more ride is on my 'bucket list' in case I do not live through next spring."
