Triggr (now Trigr= in WarBirds) is the technician of our
Squad. He is a WarBirds trainer, and the author of The Practical Guide
to WarBirds, a guide to WarBirds for both beginners and
old hands. Which means he not only knows what to do in air combat, he knows how to explain
it to someone else.
In the real world, he practices law in Los Gatos,
California, in the mountains south of Silicon Valley. Triggr's description of his hobbies:
Fishing, surfing (waves and Net,) flying in the Twin
Commanche N484X, social biology, gardening (I grow food) writing, restoring 2 seater
European sports cars (e.g., '78 Lancia Beta Scorpion,) auto racing/repair, sailing and
do-it-yourself construction (houses, kit cars, furniture, whatever).
Whew, I get exhausted just reading all that. In spite of
all these hobbies, Triggr also finds time to be our Fighter Flight Leader in WarBirds, a
position he has held since . . . well, since we had such a position. Basically, when The
Haze goes up in fighters, Triggr leads us. The appointment of Triggr as our Fighter Flight
Leader turns out to have been one of our COs best decisions, because it allows him to
daydream, confident that even if he doesn't know what's going on, Triggr does.
