ME............................................... Please write to me at kkuhle01 at yahoo.com. I do not speak about myself very often and so consequently I am really not sure how to start this; I suppose, chronologically is the best way…….. So here goes....................................................... My name is Kevin T. Kuhle. I lived my first twenty "odd years" in the great cold state of Minnesota. And it is pretty cold in the winter, up there, "don’t ya know". My early years were fairly normal by most standards. I was not anything special in my first 16 years of school. The one thing that I did get into was scuba diving..................................... Somewhere around the age of 15; my best friend, Doug and I started scuba diving classes at the local YMCA. Our instructor was an old Navy diver and he believed in doing things the old fashion way. We were not allowed to wear what is known today as a buoyancy compensator but back then was called a life vest. He was extremely tough on us but scuba diving can be a dangerous sport if it is not done properly. By today's diving standards I would have to definitely agree........................... After my initial classes and forays into the sport of diving; my friend and I started up a local diving club, in our home town of Mankato MN. At this point a gentleman entered my life; Tom, who worked as the regional Boy Scout Administrator. He was a dive instructor and joined our club. We enjoyed many fine scuba trips together. He convinced me that I was a good enough diver to become an instructor myself. And so off I went to Dive Instructors School. They really shouldn't have called it a school, because they did not teach the students anything. This was 3 months of testing. Each and every task was a pass or fail situation; and if you failed, you packed your bags and went home. After many arduous times I graduated as the youngest person to achieve the rank of Diving Instructor for the PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors)....................................................................................... At the age of 20 I joined the United States Army. That was 1977, just after the war in Vietnam and I served with many men who were there and just wanted to wait out their terms of enlistment. My first duty station was Ft. Kobbe Panama. Here I learned to be a proud American. If a person lives outside the United States, in a country that is considered third world, I feel he or she will truly learn to appreciate the wonderful thing that is living in a country which has the freedoms we do here. Panama; though a beautiful country in the interior, had many issues with the masses of people that populate her coasts. But all in all, I feel that my time spent there was beneficial and enjoyable...................... After my 4 years in the military; I started college at Minnesota State University Mankato. Here I took 3 1/2 years to get my BA in Business Administration Construction Management. My senior year I was elected president of my class.............................................. After graduating from school I started my working career. My first couple of years out of school was tough because I had little experience in the real world of construction. But I was persistent in my endeavors and ultimately landed a good job with an upstart company; with new ideas and products for the construction industry, and I became one of the very first people to delve into the world of electronics for the construction industry. We worked with lasers, sonic devices, GPS, and total stations and incorporated them into construction machines, such as motor graders and bull dozers. I became "mister everything". The people who came along later specialized in certain aspects of the industry, but I was one of the first people in the industry I had to set up sales, install the equipment, train the operators, and finally service the equipment. This gave me a very unique perspective that many of my colleagues did not have. Because of this; and I hope other aspects, I was asked to work out of the main office and became the right hand of my boss; Pat, who was the Vice President of American Machine Control Sales........................................................... Many things have occurred in my life since this point as I have traveled all over the world for work but within the past two weeks I have recently moved back to Mankato MN area to finish up my degree. It seems that life can take you in a full circle. I would like to finish my Master’s over the next year. I have a job offer back down in Florida once I have everything finished up. Who knows what the next year will bring so we will see.......................................... During this period of my life I worked hard and what little time I had left, I played even harder. These situations took a heavy toll on me..................................BUT TODAY I’M SOBER and have been for going on three years. For most of my life I moved to the top of all my endeavors; but today I have fallen from that "mountain" but I plan to climb back to the top and with the grace and help of God I will get there................................................................................................I am no longer a person who goes out looking for woman I am content on finding my best friend in life and spending time with her. I believe that a real marriage is when a man and a woman care more for the other then they do for them self. My needs are taken care of by my partner and hers are taken care by me. I feel that I am spontaneous and am willing to try almost anything. I want to share in all things with my spouse. Kevin K I am a hard working man who all of sudden found that I forgot to include the best part of life that being a lifelong relationship
