My Totally Cool Friend: Keith Bates!

Posted by on October 11, 2013 in Entertainment

I just moved from Big Bear City, CA. I lived there for 3 years. Despite all of the beauty and grandeur, my favorite part was getting to be friends with Keith Bates. In many ways he is the quintessential American man. If anyone has read the Hobbit, Keith to me is Tom Bombadill. He is an unageing Adam. He is Kerouac’s modern day Cassidy. He may not even really be from this planet. But here is a video of my friend doing what he does everyday in some way or the other: Keith has fun!

Keith skis, surfs, hikes, bikes, sails, flies with all sorts of contraptions. But what impressed me most about Keith is the creativity, enterprise and imagination that supports him. Keith is a true entrepreneur. He has built multiple streams of income that support him. He works hard for his freedom and lifestyle. But he works in spurts. Then he takes off for weeks to do guy stuff and to have a blast!

If I ever have time to write the “great American novel,” Keith will be my protagonist.

Mark Baird

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. Find more information about our military programs at PatrioticHearts.org. And please make a contribution of any kind. Thank you.
