Profile: White Mountain Wes

Personal background
I am originally from the state of Vermont, but I have called New Hampshire home for over 20 years. After spending some time lurking in the ocean depths as a Submariner in the US Navy, I’ve gone to the other end of the spectrum and now spend much of my time exploring the peaks of White Mountains and other remote areas. I also enjoy teaching others how to safely go exploring in the mountains themselves. I guess the common thread here is that I like to explore places beyond the bounds of our civilization. That’s where SETI comes in.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I’ve known of the existence of SETI for many years, but I thought that it was something restricted to a select group of scientists and researchers. When I learned about SETI@home from a television program, I signed up immediately. I know that odds of finding anything with this project are astronomically large (No pun intended. Well… maybe it’s intended a little bit.). But as with all science, you will never know unless you look. Even if we never get ET’s phone call, who knows what we could discover just by looking for it.
