Best Vacation you’ve gone on and why?
I took a 6 month leave from a job and drove my truck to Alaska. I got to meet a lot of great people and see some amazing places. It was so good for my soul to just be in nature and not live by a clock or a schedule.
If you had to pick one place on Earth as your favorite, where would it be?
Big Timber Montana. I stood in one spot for 2 hours on a free range private ranch and saw Mule deer, Whitetail deer, Pronghorn Antelope, Elk, Wolves, and a Moose.
Being in the Outdoors is like breathing. You only realize how important it is when you’re not doing it. — Fred Bear (I believe it means don’t take our environment for granted.)
Who would you love to meet in person?
Theodore Roosevelt. He is known as the conservationist president
Best advice ever given?
You never have to remember the truth but a lie is chained to you for life.
