As we are about to enter the 5th month of the Chinese Flu my wife and I are starting to get more than a little tired of all the drama, hysteria and hyperbole surrounding it so we decided to go on a road trip. Luckily we live in South Dakota and have a governor who treats us like adults and hasn’t placed any restriction on us so we are free to travel as we wish. So we started by taking a trip down memory lane.

[From Feb. 17,2013} Sometimes working at school at school it's not just things we do for the living. When a funeral is too big for the church they will have them in the high school gym. I have taken part in 3. This is my reflection on those and the things I have learned from them.
[From Jan. 13,2013] My cousin Bob McPeek tells how he discovered the poems that his Dad wrote during WWII and how he used them to write the song "Sunset on the Prairie". This is a tribute to his dad and to the people who fought in the war. Please check out the song and video.
[From Dec. 29,2012] I talk to Julie Kuehl, my co-host on the SciTech Talk Podcast, about some of her accomplishments. From martial arts (with swords) to motorcycles to ham radio, we hear stories from her interesting life. We discuss Japan, Dakota weather and travel tips. So grab a cup of coffee, put your feet up and have a listen.
[From Dec. 15,2012] In this episode I recall some of my Christmas memories about our country church and my family. From waiting for people to come home to opening presents, this was a special time of year when I was a kid. Please come and listen to my tales of Christmas past.
[From Nov. 28,2012] Tina Peterson, a pastor's wife from Clark, South Dakota and a friend of mine, tells me about her trip to Israel. She shares her impressions of the culture and the food, and what it was like to be where Jesus had lived.
[From Nov. 24,2012] Kevin Allder and I sit down to talk about our early geekery and how we were able to do this while growing up in a rural environment. So break out the Twinkie's (if there are any out there), polish up your slide rules and listen to us trip down memory lane.
[From Oct. 14,2012] Where you are will help to shape the person you become. Whether it is going to another city to have your beliefs challenged or going to another country and being exposed to another way of life, location can be as important as the people you know. Join me as Scott Willsey talks to me about being a foreigner (gaijin) in Japan.
[From Sept. 29,2012] You live in a small town all your life and you end up seeing things from a certain point of view. That why it is refreshing to have some one new come to town especially if it is someone who has led a different life than you. This is the story of Josh Birrittier, a tattoo artist that moved to the town of Clark. Hear how he got his start, how he ended up here and what he thinks of the place where he lives.
[From Sept. 2,2012] In this first episode I tell the story of my rise and fall as a farmer. Coming from a long line of farmers, I had dreams and ambitions but reality has this habit of doing what it wants. Listen to the podcast and see how my story comes out.
