Ben is certainly one of those people with an interesting life.

For his first retirement, he and his wife sailed around the Caribbean for about 10 years.

Then for their second retirement, they moved to Panama and built a beautiful house near Boquete. Ben also built an observatory on his property to listen for signals from space.

    Ben, would love to visit your optical SETI system and speak geek with you the next time my husband and I are in Panama – some time in 2021 I hope.

    The environment Ben described is exactly the environment my husband, John, and I are interested in. Would love to check this area out when we make our trip to Boquete. Please let us know where this location is.

      HI Denise

      Ben lives in the Volcancito area of Boquete. I live just up the street from him on Volcancito road too. It has the best weather in Boquete!
