ince the pandemic became a reality, the world
has changed dramatically, both for the better and
worse. It’s caused significant damage to some, including lost loved ones, and forced some to prioritize things
in their lives and spend more time with family.
For me, it has been a chance to take to the road and
explore while working via my laptop from a travel trailer on the
shores of some of the best fisheries the country has to offer.
A DREAM TO A REALITY
My wife Tanya and I have always dreamed of traveling the county and fishing along the way. The
pandemic made that plan a reality, putting it right in front of us instead of shelving that dream for retirement.
The prospect of online schooling for our kindergarten aged son, Fisher, was the kickoff to move us forward. With schooling done online, we could do it anywhere and that worked for his first year and we’ve since switched to homeschooling this school year.
My occupation as an outdoor writer only requires a laptop and internet connection and my wife, a self- employed real estate agent, chose to take a step back and enjoy the moment and have more family time.
I use my truck to pull our small, 19-foot travel trailer and my wife pulls my Bass Cat Caracal behind her SUV.
