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.

Hale Pohaku aka Hotel Mauna Kea

Yes, yes, I know I've been incredibly lax and haven't posted in ages. In fact, I probably wouldn't be posting now but this video was too funny. Kirk has been in Mauna Kea since December 1st working on a project at the IRTF (Infra-red Telescope Facility). I arrived yesterday and am staying with him here at the dormitories for a couple of days. Tomorrow we leave and start a week-long vacation here on the Big Island.

Having spent a day or so here (it's actually a very nice facility), I found this video really funny and enjoyable. You get a small picture of what life is like up at the telescope as well as down here at the dorms.


Nice to see your still around! :-)
