I’m your typical Midwest guy: I‘m a Packers fan who would love to catch a game every year at Lambeau. I love to barbeque on the grill in the summer. I really don’t mind cold and snowy winter weather. I think anyone who complains too loudly about winter is simply half-joking. Otherwise you’d already be gone. However, it is possible that I am half-crazy when I say I like the winter season. My favorite past time is traveling, which means I am on the road a lot visiting family across the USA.
