my inspiration


The great wild and outdoors that is where my dad lives. My father loves everything about life, even if it is a bad situation.  He does the best he can to make it the best situation. He inspires me the most out of anybody alive that I know. 
            His life is very interesting. He wants to make life better than it is.  One time he got ran over by a railroad cart, he made the best of it and cleaned it and kept loving what he was doing.  He wants to make the world better than it seems. 
            What my father does for a living he works at Cargill, he is the general manager for O’Neill.  Ill tell you one thing, he isn’t afraid of getting dirty or hurt. He works a lot harder than anyone else there. We also have a farm and he does the chores and he takes care of everything out there, and we have hogs, cattle, dogs, and more.
            What he loves the most in his life is outdoorsy stuff and family. My family he loves for all of are passion and he drives most of us to work harder because he has the will to keep working. He loves the outdoors for the animals because they fight hard to survive through the week. The outdoors can eat you alive if you aren’t paying attention.
            Steven Howard does what he needs to do to stay alive, he hopes that everything will go right, although sometimes they don’t and he makes the best he can, he ether fixes or throws that idea out the window.

travel report


Where do you want to go in a day with a family member for free? Well I would want to go to Alaska with my dad, Steve Howard. It will be a lot of fun wherever you would go.  The people and their traditions are fun to learn about in Alaska. My three main things that Alaskans are concerned about are hunting, fishing, and preservation of food. 
            Hunting is a huge part to Alaskans. They like to hunt mostly black tailed deer, black bear, moose, and caribou. The state even has a lot of pheasants, ducks, and geese. I am sure that they have a lot of other different animals that you can hunt or trap.  Alaskans normally hunt bears during the springtime after hibernation.  Most big game animals are hunted during November and December.
            Fishing is another big part of their lives. They don’t fish for fun they do it to provide for their families. They normally go fishing for salmon, halibut, and many others. They all have their little secret spots that they love and if their best buddy knows it you might want search for a new spot that he doesn’t know about.
            What most people like about the Alaska is the way of life and plentiful wild game and food. What they normally eat is what they find out in the wilderness or raise on their farmstead.  Most people eat the normal stuff that lives in Alaska. For example, bear, deer, cows, pigs, rabbits, fish, waterfowl, and a lot more.
             Well I want to go to Alaska for all of the experiences that you can get from learning from all of the elders around the state of Alaska. It has a lot of places around the state I would want to go and visit to hunt, fish, and learn about their way of life and experiences the people have had.
