My wife and I live in the Michigan on 300 acres where we have built many cabins and are working on planting a number of native prairies and other restoration projects. When not in Michigan we travel around the country doing Ferris Wheel and other production jobs. We have a camper van that we travel with most of the time. Before living in Michigan we lived off grid in southern Missouri on 40acres. In our younger years we owned a corner grocery and local foods store in historic Amana Iowa. Hosting the farmers market and working in the local schools and theater company rounded out our 14 years in Iowa.
