The first sketches of the Slug model, geological time lines, similar patterns in different basins, figuring out ages. Sedimentary rocks with Sloss, geology around the world with Krambein, time lines with Chuck Campbell. From well logs to seismic data. 1963: Seismic reflectors follow time lines, not rock formations. First official talk: only colleagues from same company. Seismic lines in forearc basins: Eureka moment looking at Nicaraguan margin. The scientific questions rise from yout own work. Educating colleagues with short courses and the outcrops. Tough times convincing people. The Seismic Stratigraphy team: communication, approach to research, compatibility. About Vail et al., 1977. Lack of data in pubblications. Vail becomes famous. Private Company Neftex continuously documents the global correlations. From Industry to Academy. His own oil Company: it did not do that well... Money gave him a nice life. Feeling good.
