I had the good sense to be born and raised on a cattle ranch. All the people on that ranch were true survivors. The older bunch were pioneers and homesteaders, the next generation learned from them as well as using empty spaces to make their own mark. My generation had the freedom and ease of life that comes with luxuries such as electricity and paved roads while still having a good look at life without them. As a kid I daydreamed more than I was present. As an adult I still do, but with a more complex awareness of the possibilities, and a life time of adventures to draw upon. I hope ti share my experience, adventures, and ideas.
