Greetings!

I am an avid hiker, camper and backpacker. I'm currently residing here in south-central Wisconsin. On my days off (Tues-Wendsdays) I camp at Lake Farm, part of of the Dane County Park System.

I work as an LTE (Limited Term Employee) Laborer at Devil's Lake State Park in Wisconsin. I'm in charge of cleaning Park buildings, restrooms, bath houses and pit toilets. Plus I operate the utility vehicle ("mule").

No home to speak of. I live in my tent year around.
