I grew up in Hudson, Illinois, a small and friendly farming community. After high school I attended The University of Iowa and following graduation began a career with State Farm. After 36 1/2 years and the last 23 as an agent in Colorado Springs, I just retired. Now the real adventures begin!
My two favorite activities are golf and hiking and I have been lucky to do both at many fascinating places around the world. It is amazing what you can find when you have a camera and a backpack and the tranquillity gained and the people you meet on a golf course.
Trips to New Zealand and Australia are at the top of the list but there are so many great places in the U.S. where I have not been or experienced....yet. Stay tuned for photos and notes from the ground I have covered.
