So, ya came here to find out about the mysterious guy who runs this rinky-dink little hovel in cyberspace? Well, you came to the right place.

My name is Travis Mason-Bushman, and I live in Richmond, California, a suburb of San Francisco. I'm 17, and a journalism major at Contra Costa College, a community college in San Pablo, California. I'm currently the associate editor of the Contra Costa College Advocate, the college's award-winning student newspaper. I (obviously) am a model railroader and railfan. I mostly model the late, lamented Milwaukee Road, the wobbliest of the old transcon lines. It fell in 1986, but it will never be forgotten. I'm also a licensed Technician-class amateur (ham) radio operator, KG6EME. I occasionally check into the Chicken Net based out of St. Helena, CA. at 145.190 MHz, PL 88.5 hz.
