Dan grew up in the country where self-reliance and preparedness were a way of life. From backpacking, hunting, and wildcraft to gardening, food preservation, and animal husbandry he learned many skills. Dan was homeschooled including during high-school & now helps his wife homeschool their 6 children on a newly acquired 10 acre homestead. He has been a scoutmaster for 8 years, an industrial forester, and has raised nearly every type of domestic livestock. Dan’s firsthand experience makes him a valuable asset to those who know him. He is a life-long learner and a natural teacher who believes that if you want to learn something, there is no better time than the present!
