Easy going farm boy


Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I guess I'm what you would call "your average Joe". Grew up on a small farm in Southern Indiana, and then moved to east-central Illinois about 34 years ago when I went to work at a local refinery. I love the out doors and spend much of my free time (and there is never enough) piddling around our 30 acre "farm", doing some motorcycle or ATV riding, or maybe in the woods hunting. My wife is a nurse, and my best friend. We have a 5th wheel toy-hauler that we love to drag all over the country when we have the time.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I’m an auto/diesel mechanic by trade, but haven’t made a living in that profession for many years. I’m still pretty handy with a wrench, and a decent electrician and plumber when duty calls.

Just a couple of barn cats.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Up to this point, the only boondocking we've done has been at a few Wal-marts, truck stops, and rest areas.
