As a native Iowan I have lived all across the U.S. while serving in the Army and raising my family. Over 30 years of marriage to my wonder wife we had 5 children, with four of them grown and one still at home. Since an early age, living in a rural farming town I enjoyed the outdoors. Taking time to enjoy hunting, shooting and fishing is important to me not only for relaxation but for survival. I am a Avid Pilot, Survivalist and Prepper, sharing my life and stories through writing and photos is a passion of mine. "Life is what you make it, you only get one chance in life to have fun"
