Hi! Thanks for listening to Cathy and I every morning for the last 10 years. I grew up on ‘The Range’ and I’ve made the Twin Ports my home for over the last decade. It’s a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love to hunt, fish, and hang out in our great outdoors. I also love my job! It’s great to be able to connect with everybody in the Northland every morning and have a few laughs together. I’ve lived in many different parts of the Midwest, but nothing is as great as right here!

When You Go Fishing & You Get Skunked, You Can Always Count On Salmon Patty Sandwiches

Add one more time to the list where I couldn't catch enough fish for dinner.   It's actually happened to the same friend and I three times now.  We promised we will never plan on it again, as it's always been the worse fishing.  We went out to a lake where we have always walked away with fish, and this time we didn't walk away with any keepers.  But that's ok!  We planned a back up.  Salmon patties!

Be Aware Of Traffic Accidents & Delays During Tall Ships

The Tall Ships have started to arrive in Duluth, and my commute this afternoon was a little adventurous.   There were three accidents downtown, likely caused by motorists turning their attention to the majestic ships sailing into the harbor.  21st Avenue East exit was closed because of an accident, and Canal Park and the streets leading to it were gridlocked.

Here’s A Sneak Peak of The Mills Fleet Farm Store Layout Map

‘Neature Walk’ Is A Hilarious Video From Years Ago That Somehow I Missed, It’s Guaranteed To Make You Laugh [VIDEO]

I had a friend show me this video the other day and I just thought it was really a unique and funny clip.  It's called "Neature Walk," and it's a refreshing change of surprising humor.  It's so stupid it's funny, and that's what I love about it.  It came out years ago, but somehow I missed it.  Check it out, it's pretty neat.

Embark 8 Person ‘Insta-Up’ Tent Review, Yes It Is That Easy

My wife went shopping at Target using her cartwheel app that she loves so much.  She found a deal on an Embark "Insta-up" 8 person tent.  It was cheap with the app, I think she spent only 80 bucks on it.  It normally retails for $135.  Being it was so cheap, I figured it would be garbage, but I went ahead and tried it out this weekend.   After my first experience with it, I can honestly say it is the easiest tent I have ever set up.

The Largest Appetizers I Have Ever Seen Sent Me Into A Food Coma

In a time where appetizers now cost as much as full entrees and are usually tiny sized, this is worth mentioning.  My wife and I had a rare date night last night, so we decided to go out for a couple of beers and a couple of appetizers.  What started as a "light dinner" idea, soon turned into an evening ending food coma.  But, you could argue it was worth it.

Coke ‘Life,’ A Somewhat Lower Calorie Option in A Green Can [REVIEW]

I was in the grocery store yesterday on my way to the check out when I saw Coke Life.  It caught my eye as it was in a green can.  It said lower calorie Coke.  I thought I would give it a shot as it said it's made with real cane sugar.   It doesn't have any of the high fructose corn syrup crap.
