interests sports and gaming dungeons and dragons

I found I shared an interest in puzzle solving and games with some of my volleyball buddies.
We used to sneak downtown LA at midnight to play the original beta version of Zork on the main frame computer of a major bank.
One of my friends worked there and the game had been placed on the computer to help employees learn to interact with the new computer.
If we had done this now days, I'm sure we would have been shot, but those were more innocent times.

Later we began playing Dungeons and Dragons one night a week... I really enjoyed the late night challenges and the camaraderie.
After I moved to Oregon, I lost these good times.

Fairly recently, Lynn and I made a trip to southern California and we renewed old acquaintances.
We todays technology, we found I can renew my weekly quests with the old group.
Using Google Hangouts, we can hear and see each other in real time.
Using a gaming program called Klooge, I can see the map and access the character sheets also in real time.
I find I really look forward to game night.
