Ernie Tolin had wanted to go to the US Naval Academy. He would not be able to realize that dream. He would pursue a second dream of working with aircraft and being able to work on the National Forest. He gave up a full time job to pursue this dream and would spend the majority or his life working for the US Forest Service. His first assignment was the “Air Attack Unit” at Chino airport. He would be reassigned to an aerial reseeding project on the San Dimas Experimental Forest. He would continue working on research projects and would receive a permanent appointment and work for the “Fuel Break Project”. Ernie would eventually get transferred to the new Forest Fire Laboratory in Riverside California. Helicopter projects, fire fighting, re vegetation and vegetation survey work would keep Ernie busy for a couple of years. Working at the Fire Lab would require analysis of large volumes of data. The only way to do the analysis was to use hand calculators or learn how to use mainframe computers. Ernie became a computer programmer and began writing programs to analyze not only field data but use the technology to dispatch fire equipment and make maps of fuel types for fire simulations. Ernie would be reassigned to Washington DC to work on automated mapping systems. Soon, he would be heading up a technical group of computer specialist. He would help develop specifications for major computer purchases. By the late 1970’s Ernie would head up a group of specialist to analyze data for the Roadless Area Review (RARE II). Ernie would be named as the Director of Computer Science in the California Pacific Island Region and he would move to the San Francisco Bay area. Ernie continued working as the Director of Computer Science & Telecommunications Staff until his retirement.

This inspiring and true adventure story is about the author and her husband s journey to find beauty and meaning on the little known Island of Lefkas. The realistic descriptions of the people and places in the evocatively Greek environment take you right there with them, sharing in this heart-warming venture. The text moves along at a comfortable pace, and the prose is vivid and full of memorable images that contrast the Island s beauty with their traveling hardships. Follow them on their journey and find out if they found the secret of true happiness, or were they merely chasing dreams? Note from the author: I wrote this book because I wanted to share some unforgettable experiences with other dreamers who might not have had the opportunity to 'opt out of the rat race' the way my husband, Tony and I did in 1991. It was a way out of a depressing situation when Tony was made redundant shortly before his 50th birthday. When you have reached rock bottom there is nowhere else to go, but up. When you lose all material things sometimes if you are determined you can overcome all difficulties, but you have to have a dream and follow it. Then you can gain so much more. Because we live in a pre-planned society rare opportunities are often missed. It is only when we look back we wonder why we never saw them at the time. Why did we hesitate? Why did we lose our dreams? Maybe in the great scheme of things there is a reason for everything. Maybe the drastic change in our circumstances was an opportunity for us to find our dream and have the adventure of a lifetime... This is what I want to share in the hope that it will help people in today's economic crisis to take on a challenge, to find a dream and do something that they might never have done. Then they can look back and say, "I'm glad we had that recession."

Ralph, the boy with a dream, is not aware that his determination will be tested to its limits. The early thrills do not give him a clue of what's in store. Just when he thinks he's got it all under control he nearly hits rock bottom. He is about to pack his bags when experienced elders put sense into him, and he begins to see that there might be light at the end of the tunnel. Only later, some years into his adult life, he seems to have sussed out that it's not all hunky-dory and that possibly it might be a case of `the enemy within'. It still hasn't sunk into him that it's not about fair play but about a different sort of a game. Are there no rules to play by, or can some always play foul? Ralph unravels this mind-blowing tale of uncertainties and of life at the cross-roads in absorbing descriptions. `The story is a gripping tale of human endeavour and survival,' says an experienced Indian psychologist. `The situations described,' says an American journalist, `offer guideposts to Managers floundering at the deep end of decision-making.' `It's a double-decker inspirational package for training,' says a British educationist.
