About Me
I grew up as an "archaeology-brat" with my grandfather, primarily following him around on digs along the Great Lakes, primarily at Fort Mackinac and Fort Michilimackinac. He was also a WWII vet along with his brothers, so it was basically like growing up in the 1940s given their topics of conversation. Thus it was inevitable that I would also pursue historical interests.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Reading, Hiking, Historical Travel, Battlefield Photography and Interpretation at http://militaryhistorytraveler.blogspot.com/ Goodreads at https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/46855416-michael-ryzy
BGG Profile: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/Chicago%20Wargamer
Spending time with Corwin, the scholarly Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I am certainly Sherman to his Peabody.

Hi Mike. Sure I'll put you on, but not very active on the social side of CSW though. You were playing the Ottomans right? As I remember you were also doing GCACW with Mike L? Would love to get up on that system but first its ASL
