#1. To know me, you have to know where I come from. I hail from a small town on the Chippewa River called Durand, WI. Population 1,968. Where there are more bars than houses. Where there is a stuffed albino deer in the main entrance of the high school. Where "drive your tractor to school day" is a real thing. I love living here and I wouldn't trade my small town roots for anything in the world.
