Good day. My name is Nathan. I really love dirt.
I grew up in the mountains of Utah but have been in the Midwest for the last 10 years or so. As much as I miss the towering peaks, it makes me very happy to be amongst the corn and bean fields. I really enjoy traveling around the corn belt, working with farmers to help them manage some of the soil and water quality issues inherent with crop production.
It seems that every day is very busy, with more to do than I can possibly accomplish. However, I am rarely rushed. There is always time to enjoy a sunrise, call a friend in need, or strum out an old bluegrass song.
I rarely go to the movies, but I see live theater productions whenever I can. I love listening to music, dancing, and reading the "old classics". While I am not a great cook, I like trying new recipes and I purchase pre-made food as little as possible. Although my outdoor options are relatively limited in Iowa, I go hiking, camping, and canoeing as much as possible.
Based on how I spend my time, I would have to say that my faith and my family are the two most important things in my life. These are probably followed by dirt and bluegrass :)
Have a stellar day!
