He has a long history of working in the field of power generation. Coal and Biogas/Digesters. Shirley is a retired RN. We lived in Alaska during the 1990's and our children were born in Fairbanks, Alaska. Our daughter and son are in their 20's. We have a long history of providing lodging for tourists. Monte was raised on a nearby lake resort in Tomahawk. The resort has been in continuous operation since the 1930's. If you are looking for lodging for more than 2 people, you should check out Pine Cone Ranch Resort, in Tomahawk, WI. We have provided lodging to tourists since we were married in 1989, first in Alaska for 9 years with 6 cabins for visitors to Denali National Park at Healy Heights Family Cabins and now here in northern Wisconsin. We love to travel and try to stay in family owned/operated places as much as possible. We meet new friends when we travel and we hope you will too, with us!
