Ernie preferred the terrain and beauty that Western United States offered and lived in Colorado for 25 years. He enjoyed many adventures while driving his Jeep CJ 5 and CJ 7 and he was always ready for some fishing or big-game hunting. For relaxation, Ernie enjoyed watching Hogan’s Heroes or any old western and often worked crossword puzzles.
