Donna Crawford
Redondo Beach, California


I was born in North Carolina and lived there until I was about 2 or so.  My father was in the military, so we moved every year or two.  We lived up and down the east coast, in Arkansas, Germany and Kansas, before he retired in 1980.  I attended Manhattan High School (in Kansas) and college and law school at the University of Kansas (Go Jayhawks!!).

I've lived in Alabama, Georgia, Texas and California since leaving my parents' home.  I currently live in California with my husband Kirk (even while we were on our RTW, we considered California as home). My family and friends are scattered all over the place, as you can imagine.

My husband and I are highly involved with our church, locally. I have lots of hobbies, including cooking, HAM radio, reading, travelling, bzflag, and sports/outdoor activities. Although I love to watch Jayhawk Basketball, I generally prefer to participate. Some of my favorites are beach volleyball, scuba diving, cycling, rowing, swimming, snow skiing, tramping, surfing, off-roading, etc.

My travels over the last few years have taken me to Costa Rica, Hawaii, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and most recently, on a 15-country, 1-year round-the-world trip.

Hi, Donna- Just got some photos sent your way- Hope ya like them- Have a great Holiday season!
Hey Donna, your name popped into my head today so I googled you and here you are! We haven't been in touch since I left you at Heathrow for your flight home 8th Sept 2003 but I hope you and Kirk are happy and healthy and enjoying life. All is well here, Geoff and I are great, Molly is nearly 9 and Nancy will be 5 at the end of the summer they are an absolute joy.

Take care,Heather x
Great site, keep it up.
Hi Sporty. It's been many months since I've seen any trace of you in cyberland, and I just wanted to check up on your. Your e-mail link from your home page is broken. But at least you updated your blog in the past 2 weeks, so that's something.

Drop back by ##essy sometime.
Woot! Lovin' the blog! :)
Donna, I am a fellow Jayhawk from KU, still in the K.C. area. I got to your site while googling "Extrreme Makeover Home Edition". Your involvement with the recent 2hr episode is exciting. I am having a terrible time locating Makeover t-shirts for my son, who is a #1 fan. Have looked at, web, etc. Any suggestions? Thought you might know of something in your area since a local family was just featured. Any information would be appreciated.

Rock Chalk Jayhawk, KU!
