This year was far more productive than in years past thanks to plentiful opportunities that I began to take advantage of in the spring. While the year began at a relatively slow start, I completely embraced moving back to Kelly, Wyoming after living in Victor, Idaho, making the most of every opportunity.… Keep reading...
