Hometown: I grew up on my family's farm in Van Buren, Arkansas. It was homesteaded seven generations ago and has been in my family ever since.
Favorite place to eat: Taste of Thai on the square in Fayetteville. When Kayla and I were first married 18 years ago we'd go there on date nights and have loved it ever since. We went in last week and the same waitress still works there! (She did not remember us, which I tried to not take too personally...)
If you could witness any event (past, present, or future) what would it be and why? Totally random, but I'd love to know exactly what caused the Mayan civilization to disappear. How crazy is it that they were there, huge, thriving, and then not. Send me back to see how that went down.
Interesting Fact: I've had 4 near death experiences. 1) Hit by car on Dickson Street while riding my mountain bike. 2) Hopelessly lost on a snowy night in a 600,000 square acre Kentucky wildlife management area. 3) Literally caught in the crossfire of Israeli and Hezbollah artillery. 4) And, had a cargo truck roll over the van I was driving through the Chinese countryside.
