Hey folks, welcome to the show. Today’s episode is perhaps my favorite yet, with a very special group called Heroes and Horses. Rick Franco invited me as a welcoming gesture for moving to Montana, and I happened to have heard a bit about this program prior to him reaching out to me. For those of you who have not seen the “500 Miles” film or “180 out” we have it linked below. Rick discusses the forty day program for veterans with PTSD and wild horses from Oregon. I hope you all enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed talking to Rick about this awesome program. To help donate, you can go too HeroesandHorses.org

Hello all! Ryan and I are very excited for you to join us for this episode. A while back Ryan and I were asked by Josh Nordwick of the “Reality Tunnel Podcast” to be guests on his show. We got a lot of great feedback from his followers, so we thought we would share it too.
Alright everyone, I’m very excited to share this episode with you all. On today’s show, Ryan and I are joined by Jordan Reasoner, the brains behind the backcountry food company you may have heard of called Humble Foods.

After many doctors visits over many of years, he finally discovered that he had celiac disease.

This time we visited Melissa at her homestead outside of Rockport, WA , about an hour 1/2 drive from our house. We shared a meal and got a little more personal on her success and making a healthier lifestyle a way of life.

Ryan spent most of his young life in nature hiking, scouting, and hunting. Skills learned from his father shaped his love for the outdoors and the a healthy respect for the balance of life. In today's podcast, Ryan takes his oldest daughter Pailey Belle hiking and possibly bear hunting for the 1st time. Even though she is only 8, not old enough to hunt by herself, she is very excited to be on the hunt with her Dad.
This is a long story. One that has taken me nearly 20 years to write. If you don’t have a relationship in your life, then this story may not interest you, but if you love, are, or know anyone who has a passion greater than most, you may get something from it. It wasn’t an easy story to live or write about. It’s not easy to share our flaws, our secrets, our fears. Relationships, especially marriages, usually always have something to teach us. My teacher was coming to love a man who loves hunting, and through that, realizing that I didn’t need to make him choose. He could love us both.
In this podcast Ryan and Hillary sit down at the Oregon Waterfowl Festival/NW Elk Camp with Scott and Beth Carr of Hammer and Chisel. They talk about a wide range of topics from hunting, health, marriage, and in the end they all get personal about themselves and what they are most grateful for (including Ryan and Hillary).
