Why the name Traveler? Well... There I was in the mid 70's, driving the John Deere tractor across the family farm in West Central Wisconsin (North of La Crosse) wondering just what was over that next hill. Upon High School graduation, I tried higher education, but I was not ready for it. So I joined the US Air Force, and 28 years later I had visited 4 of 7 continents, 13 countries and 26 states. Picked up a wife and 3 daughters in a package deal along the way. The wife was a widow at the time. I’ve got a lifetime’s worth of memories, good and bad, from being in the military. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Favorite Quotes? I have several.

"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well."

Booker T. Washington


"Fear of something is at the root of hate for others, and hate within will eventually destroy the hater".

George Washington Carver


"Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth."

Mohandas Gandhi


"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery"

Winston Churchill

And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

John Mayer
Song:"Waiting On The World To Change"


"Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it."

Mark Twain


"A man should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

Lazarus Long
