John and Connie go on hunting trips and travel. “We just got back from British Columbia in January. We’ve been very fortunate to go on several African safaris. Our travels have taken us to New Zealand, Australia, England, Argentina, Mongolia and China. When we were in China we walked the Great China Wall. I love working in my yard. Landscaping is a passion of mine. We enjoy living in Meeker. We love the great outdoors, the friendly people and the small town life in general,” Connie said.
