Larry joined the CVHC in December of 2001, after retiring from a 33 year career as a pilot for United Airlines. His first hike was a futile effort - trying to keep up with Suzanne Randell doing the: "Tables in 20." He thinks it took him more like 40. His 2nd hike was led by Lisa Gonzalez.....a snowshoe affair at which he was equally inept. His luck took a dramatic turn for the better in 2003 when he met Robin at the tram. He couldn't keep up with her either, but finally caught her in 2006 when in a moment of weakness she said, " I DO " during their wedding at Melvyn's Ingleside Inn. Happily, they have had 22 babies since then (all swimming in their koi pond ). Oh yes! They do find time to hike once in awhile, so they hope you will join them. They enjoy good workouts so you will usually find them leading more strenuous hikes. Hiking is Healthy. See you on the trail.
