Hobbies I enjoy: I've always enjoyed farming. Half the family roots are in dairy farming.
Rock climbing, skiing, hiking, scuba, reading and taking care of the dogs.
The proudest moment on my farm: The first day my banana tree produced bananas. That was short lived. I proposed to my wife on Christmas Eve and was too preoccupied to pay attention to the weather report that said we were to have a frost overnight. That wiped out all of my tropicals. That happened in Scottsdale though. Should work out better here...
Pets: 2 Rotties... Skatje and Chance
Farm Motto: I know nothing and I proclaim to proclaim even less...
