Crash Landing into a Field of Outhouses

290 pages3 hours


Kenneth A. Bauer grew up in a time when a neighborhood was a mysterious playground waiting to be explored.

Spending Saturday afternoons at the local movie theater with his friends inspired many adventures. One week Ken was Robin Hood hunting the neighbor’s chickens in a corn patch, while another time he was digging tunnels under another neighbor’s garden. Surviving his busy, early child-hood developed Ken’s lifetime motto, “How tough could it be?”

While in high school, Ken bought an airplane for $5 down and got his pilot’s license at age sixteen, leading to many more adventures. His healthy curiosity got him into trouble at times, like nearly blowing up the school janitor in a cloud of purple smoke due to his overzealous passion for chemistry!
