meeting us

We are both long time Alaskans, growing up on homesteads and farms. We went to school, raised kids and work in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Us out on one of many geocaching adventures!

We love the outdoors, fishing, camping, geocaching, flying our drones, photography and Cooking on our Big green egg and other smokers and grills.

We will post weekly, but do to college, jobs, and life…. we could post more or less.

Tony works at a big gold mine north of town, as a fueler/mechanic.  Danelle works in Administration at the local hospital.  We have 3 kids, all grown and on their own.   They still come around to get home cooked meals or ask for advice on life.

We are debt free since spring of 2019, taking 38 months to pay off $154,000.  We now budget and save and live with in our means.  Our biggest adventure in the next year is to buy a home with cash!  After that we start vacationing and enjoying life (still with in our means).

We love our community and donate or volunteer for the Fairbanks food bank, the Fairbanks drama association, and the Fairbanks rescue mission.

God has blessed us with family, friends, jobs, our health, and money.  We love God and know he is there always for us.  We know that we couldn’t have become debt free without.

The guidelines we used was Dave Ramsey’s Financial peace course.
