Riding the White line is a symbol of life and how we live it. When I ride my bike on many of the back roads around my upstate NY town I follow the white fog line that marks the right hand side of the road. It is the white line that keeps me on the right path. If I stray too far to the left I endanger myself by riding in the travel lane, if I stray too far to the right, I run the risk of riding into the shoulder and crashing and getting a serious case of road rash. To lead a "normal" life is similar to riding the "white line". When you stray off course bad things can happen to you. Riding the White line helps me to stay focused and on course. Things go wrong when your life is out of balance - just like when you stop riding the white line. What follows in this book are my thoughts and experiences during a life-changing, tumultuous part of my life. It follows the period in 1995 when I decided to start my own Internet Company, the merger and acquisition of other companies, my first cancer scare, the fall and ultimate demise of my foray into the business world, losing my job, and finally my battle with my cancer recurrence. Mix in a new house, teenagers, and world events like September 11, 2001 and it made for a wild ride.

About the Author:

Jeffrey Wood was born and raised in Watertown, New York. He and his wife Mary are the proud parents of two grown children. Jeff graduated from Jefferson Community College in Watertown, New York in 1984 and began his career in Data Processing at New York Casualty Insurance Company. In 1992 he left NYC to pursue a business of his own. For seven years he worked as the Vice President of Network Services for IMC Consultants. In 1995 he was a co-founder of the first privately owned Internet Service Provider in Jefferson County. When IMC-Net merged with GiSCO in 1999 Jeff became the Chief Technical Officer of GiSCO. In 2001 Jeff joined Westelcom as a Communications Network Engineer. Currently Jeff is the Technical Services Manager for Samaritan Medical Center. In 1999 Jeff was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. Surgery removed the tumor and Jeff was in a state of remission until May of 2001 when his cancer returned. Four cycles of chemotherapy, extensive surgery, and 5 years of surveillance has left Jeff optimistic that he is cured of this devastating disease. In 2002 Jeff and his brother Steve (also a testicular cancer survivor), co-founded North Country Against Cancer. NCAC is an organization that is dedicated to the education, awareness, prevention and treatment of cancer in Upstate New York. Jeff and Steve provide awareness programs and inspirational talks to many organizations, students and civic groups. Their signature fund-raising event is the SpokerRide for Life - a 50 mile bike race in Sackets Harbor New York that raises thousands of dollars each year that is donated to the American Cancer Society and the Lance Armstrong Foundation. When not speaking or working or writing, Jeff can be found on the streets of communities throughout the North Country directing the Original Yanks Drum and Bugle Corps.
