Here is our Story
Josh and Mike have been friends since they were in 7th grade. Josh lived in the city of Lawrenceburg back then while Mike lived 13 miles out of town in the country. Each of them had friends who hunted and fished and together they did things outdoors. After the years went by Josh and Mike switched places where Josh now lives out of town and stays in the woods and Mike lives basically in town and seldom wants to go anywhere outdoors. This dichotomy comes up in the videos and live show where they can be very funny and entertaining. Nearing their 40's their wives had children, Josh at 36 and Mike at 38 and Mike thought having a show for older dads was very interesting since they didn't have much in common with younger dads so they started the Older Dad Show.
Mike started building the older dad show along with other websites like the preemie paradox and noticed all of the websites had travel and kids as topics so Josh and Mike started looking at doing an outdoor focused website that takes the relationship of the lessons learned from David Crockett to today's modern culture. David Crockett came to Lawrence county with very little and became a congressman known as "the king of the wild frontier" who opposed president Andrew Jackson over the Indian removal act. We believe there are parallel stories here to how we should raise children to be great citizens that get involved and also be outdoors more.
Josh is a coon hunter and has many awards and prize winning dogs. His training style requires patience and perseverance along with an eye for observation so he can make the right call to know what to do next. Let Josh shine his light of illumination to light up the dark woods of teaching people how to be an outdoor persons and show there's nothing to be afraid of.
