Travel tip: "As soon as I get my bags in the overhead for aninternational flight, I change into a pair of cotton running pantsand a long-sleeved volleyball shirt. This helps me relax and keepsmy clothes in good shape for my arrival."
On maintaining healthy relationships: "My wife, Sheila,travels with me 40 percent of the time. If she's not with me, weknow each other's schedules and call each other twice a day." Healso makes it a priority to stay in touch with his five-year-oldgrandson, Nick, too. "When I travel, I tell him to look on theglobe I bought him and help him find the country I'm in."
Best thing about being on the road: "No doubt, it is thefriendship, the excitement of experiencing so many differentpeople. Over the past year, I've worked harder than I ever have,and yet I have had more fun than anyone could imagine. I have scubadived with manatee; climbed cliffs; attended rugby matches andbaseball, football, and soccer games; bungee jumped; and more. Butthe most important of the experiences has been the opportunity tomake friends all over the planet."
