#Balance Brief – appreciate the miles

I’m fortunate to travel many miles with the production of Wildlife
Pursuit, primarily in the fall. We often log 25,000 miles a year as we
drive across the Midwest and into Canada.

It has taken me years to be comfortable with leaving my kids behind, my
routine and all that I miss when I’m gone. I¹ve found peace with traveling
recently, primarily from being aware and appreciative for the experiences,
the people I meet and the memories created on these adventures. I¹m also
very engaged in the knowledge I gain on each and every one of these trips,
all of which I hope to share with others and ideally call upon in the near
future when Gus and Lily are able to join me.

I believe it to be true… when you open your eyes to all things along
your travels, it’s amazing what you’ll see. I’ve come to love Montana for
its “big sky” and South Dakota for the endless vistas, seemingly running
for miles. Wyoming boasts an abundant Wildlife population, specifically
Antelope that pass the miles quickly and my home state of North Dakota
thriving on agricultural seasons and crop progression that always catch my
eye. Every mile has something to offer.

Yet, take a step back and realize how this same perspective of miles
traveled can be applied to your everyday drive or routine. What did we
take for granted as we drove to work or school today? What might we see
different if we appreciate the miles? It¹s time to take another lookŠ.and
notice what¹s been there all along.

I grew up enjoying the sport of hunting and have truly come to fully appreciate every aspect of the hunt…leading up to the kill. The show has taken me to some amazing destinations where I have met some wonderful people, places where I now visit on a regular basis.
