The show has a focus on living the rural lifestyle...and around here that's about 150,000 folks living on 3 - 100 acres of land. Most of these people (64%) work in management or have professional type jobs. They travel into the city to work. When the end of the day comes they head back to their acreage or small farm.
And, we talk about it.
On this week's show we'll raise up the issues that have surfaced this past week, give some practical rural living tips and have a special guest.
The survey of "ruralpolitians" tells us that 89% of own at least one dog. Compare that with 64% of urban dwellers. So, this Sunday our show is going to the dogs...sort of.
Our guest will be Lyle Steinman of rural St. Joseph, Missouri. Lyle and his retriever "River" just won the Super Retriever Series Crown Championship.
So you are reading this and saying, "The what?".
Does the number $55,000 mean much? That is what Lyle and River took home for winning this remarkable event. And it was tough...but also heartwarming. We'll talk about that special bond of family and their critters.
And, yes...Lyle, his wife Debby and the family live on an acreage so they are the type of folks we talk about each week. Their place is Castile Creek Kennels.
For more about the show head to Highway 6 - Your Road to the Country and learn more.
Oh...and if you miss that show...tune in on Monday evening at 7:00pm for "The Iowa Sportsman Radio Hour". It's the other show I do that focuses on outdoor activities of all kinds. Lyle will be our guest on that show as well. Also on 98.3 WOW-FM here in Des Moines.
