original Hertzke dairy
the current Hertzke farm (my family moved here the year I was born)
the end of my going nowhere baseball career was documented in this small town Nebraska newspaper (my shoulder did not like that bat!)
my former life in the world of Colorado water rights
fat, bald & ugly goatee me (circa 2007)
the last chapter before my entrepreneurial days
One of my last days in the political world.
Me with the gov in early 2009ish. Hey, our suits match! Most suits match in that world. Some just pay more for theirs.
my first fourteener - I finally started to seek a new life filled with climbing instead of settling
always exploring new places
Which direction? Why not NYC...
I lived all around the city for most of the past 5 years. I've now lived in every borough and even a few spots in Jersey for at least 3 months. Many airbnbs. Many friends couches. Many breaks from the city while traveling. My "home" has been moving all over the place for a long time now.
So yeah, I've now got a pretty good feel for the amazing city far beyond the tourist areas. This stretch of random homes has been a powerful lesson on how the majority of the real world works and lives.
I lived 2 blocks away from this view for my first 2 years in this little town.
love a random ballgame
Summer of 2013, AKA really long hair version of me
Berlin, oh how I loved the art in Berlin.
I believe in minimalism. Experiences are so much better than storage units.
This is everything I own.
