Welcome to The World of Mister 4x4, me... Eric Hansen. You might wonder why I picked that name, but it kinda picked me. It happened when I went to a local computer store to pick up my first PC and the owner asked what I wanted my E-mail address to be for my customer ISP discount, and I had nothing (an E-mail address can say a lot about you after all). He looked out the window and saw my Jeep with the Mister 4x4* sticker on the windshield, made a suggestion, and the rest is history.

* FYI - Mister 4x4 is the name of a local chain of 4 Wheel Drive shops in Salt Lake City, Utah where I grew up and bought various things for my 4x4s - They used to have a website at this link, but it appears to be gone now HERE

I've been in San Angelo, Texas since 1991, with no plans of moving in the near future (not that there aren't some other places I might prefer to live, given the right circumstances...).  Since I've been here, I've been heard complaining about almost everything that IS West Texas, from the climate, to the terrain, to the limited job opportunities, all of the Rednecks that live here, to the unpredictable and usually scary weather.  Although it's still not my first choice of places to live, I can honestly say I'm more comfortable living here - I guess time has worn me down somewhat or something.  Or maybe it's just having finally found myself somewhat of my own niche thanks greatly in part to the San Angelo Community Band and Ice House Brass, the Auto Hobby Shop at Goodfellow Air Force Base, and the multitude of people I've met since I've been here.  I have a great job that provides for a comfortable living, a nice home, a wife that loves me, great pets, cool cars, and I've found lots of fun things to do in my free time.  Even though I still sometimes gripe about being here, I wouldn't trade the people I've met for anything in the world.  As the Beatles suggest, you truly do get by with a little help from your friends.

Over the years, I've kept this site running & growing, and occasionally redesigned the layout of just about all of the pages you'll see here.  This is yet another new look for the homepage. I'm still not sure if I've gotten it quite the way I want it - oh well.  I'm sure I'll keep at it until I do.  Anyway, this is just a snapshot of my life, and the good stuff is located on the linked pages listed towards the top that are either links to, or images of the various things that interest me - with some "bonus pages" found only by following the links in the various sub-pages. Most of the pages include some explanation of what these things mean to me.

Word of Warning: I'm long-winded and can type over 60 wpm, so clean your glasses, get a drink, and fluff the seat cushion - you'll be here awhile if you look at everything.

I hope you enjoy yourself picking through the bits and pieces of the things that make me tick, and come back often - 'cause things change... like the weather in West Texas (if you don't like it, wait a few minutes).
