Professor

Pete is a consulting engineer to various large infrastructure projects like gas pipelines, water treatment works etc.  Which is a reason why we don't see much of him, as several of the construction projects are interstate.

 

Tufty understands gismos like Bank Teller's GPS, which is a big plus 'cause Teller doesn't.  Pete ain't a Professor, but you could be excused for thinking otherwise, if you chatted with him on technical issues.
Tufty
also put in the early yards to produce the street maps and elevation profiles for several of the climbs within King of the Mountains folder.
