“I have been embracing bucket list living for most of my life. To me, that has always meant finding time to be outdoors hunting and fishing. Pheasant hunting in South Dakota with my son is a treasured memory. And owning a cabin on Beaver Lake in the beautiful Ozark Mountains has been one of life’s biggest joys. It has been my refuge for the last 30 years and has been the best place to reflect and plan my next adventure.”
