HI Jackson,

This might get you started:

# plot a few squiggles

plot(runif(100)+1,seq(10000,0,length.out=100),xlim=c(1,6),

type="l",main="Squiggles by Years",

xlab="Squiggles",ylab="Years",xaxt="n")

lines(runif(100)+2,seq(10000,0,length.out=100))

lines(runif(100)+3,seq(10000,0,length.out=100))

lines(runif(100)+4,seq(10000,0,length.out=100))

lines(runif(100)+5,seq(10000,0,length.out=100))

axis(1,at=1:5+0.5,labels=1:5)
