#daveo50 ~ 1984 (NW Region Scout Camp) / somewhere in Idaho (i think)

Project: Upon turning 50 years old on August 16, 2020, Dave Olson (me, hello) is posting a photo (or maybe photos) a day / per year – starting with 1970 with intent of chronicling existence through various primary evidence sourced from studio portraits, class photos, ID / passport photos, or occasionally other “casual/group/random” shots when the above don’t exist in my archive (note: not “artificial intelligence,” really me, pulled from shoeboxes, journals,

PS: start to see a “seachange” in me as in 1983, I saw David Bowie and rapidly transformed from diligent young student/chief scout/church boy to “all I wanna do is play punk rock and travel the world”… I joined a traveling drum corps, saw the Clash, the Ramones, Kiss (w/o makeup), DOA and 100 other bands, did a 43 day summer tour with drum corps, made fanzine, got a skateboard, explored everywhere > The pictures are scarce from these times but the ones that exist are heavily-laden with flashbacks.
