Bob Wachtel Bob Wachtel did not realize that he could make a difference until he became a founder of BWAM and a member of the Missoula Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Board (BPAB). He never dreamed that he could be involved in public work championing a walk and bike friendly Missoula or that it was something for him. Bob worked for more than 30 years at the University of Montana and liked to ride his bike the two miles each way to campus year round. He never thought about going to public meetings or working on committees and boards. It never crossed his mind that he could have so much influence and impact on what happens in Missoula. When he retired, he decided he needed something more to do and upon seeing an ad for an opening on the BPAB, he applied for the volunteer position, not sure what he could offer. He never thought of himself as someone who could influence community policy and he didn't have a clue how fascinating it can be to be on the inside and learn how everything works. One thing led to another. Now he is one of the most influential citizens on bike and walk topics in Missoula and is colleague with scores of people, and finds it to be a huge source of purpose and satisfaction in his life.

Bob was a regular bike commuter during his employment at U of Mt, cycling 2 miles each way year round. Retirement has allowed him to join the Missoula Bike/Ped Advisory Board, and participate in the formation and development of BWAM. Bob continues to avoid driving locally as much as possible. His wife is an avid walker and enjoys the ability to walk for many of her errands.
Bob continues to process his own fruit wines from available local fruit.

Seated among the myriad of keyboards and remote controls is Bob Wachtel, director of Presentation Technology Services at the University of Montana's Information Technology Office.This weekend, Wachtel will use the complex system of computers, projectors, cameras and a score of other devices to play his role in the Another Language media production "Interplay: Loose Minds in a Box."

According to a press release, the performance consists of six simultaneous performances that occur in six states throughout North America.The performances incorporate theater, text, music, performance art, virtual reality and motion capture that are simultaneously digitized and streamed onto a network of artists.
Wachtel said that Another Language, which is based in Utah, has been doing interplays for four years.
...
"We've been actively involved with the production probably since January," Wachtel said.
...
Wachtel learned of the project from the Access Grid, a computer network ordinarily used for teleconferenced teaching in business and science.
Nichols later became involved in the project through Wachtel.
...
Besides collaborating with artists in Utah and Alaska, Wachtel and Nichols will be interacting with specialists and performers in Illinois, Indiana and Maryland.
...
Wachtel said he's enjoyed participating in the project very much."I've been on campus for 32 years and kind of thinking about retiring but haven't quite gotten there," Wachtel said.
