What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard and why?
Life’s not fair – drive on! There’s a great book titled “Make Your Bed” authored by a former Navy Seal. As the retired admiral and author says, ‘if you want to change the world, start by making your bed.’
What was your favorite place you have traveled and why?
The view of the Swiss Alps from atop the Klein Matterhorn is tough to beat, as were the sounds of a mother humpback whale and calf communicating in the Bay of Banderas off Mexico’s Pacific coast. And it was unforgettable to raft down the Flathead River on the southern boundary of Glacier National Park. Anywhere and anytime I can encounter wild nature, especially with my telescopic fly rod on hand, my heart responds to God’s creation.
