Meet The Family!

Now that we’ve been up and running for a couple of months and you’ve likely seen dozens of pictures of us, you might be asking yourself who we are as individuals and what makes us tick. While you can read a little about me, Morgan, on the aptly named “About Me” page, here, there are also three rad kids that make up the Wild Wood Wanderings family that deserve a little spot light, too.

In true Wild Wood spirit, the kids and I have decided to answer a series of unconventional questions that we feel will tell you more about us than the usual “how old are you?” and “what is your favorite food?”

Meet Morgan, 34, Taurus

Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?

Chris Stapleton or any kind of classic rock. Something with a feel good beat with lyrics that have substance that I can get stuck in my head and annoy everyone with. I also like big ballads because out of nowhere I’ll just …”DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’!”

What shows are you into?
Currently, Survivor, Barnwood Builders, The Walking Dead and Grey’s Anatomy, but ALWAYS Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.

What would be your ideal way to spend the weekend?
I love to entertain so my ideal weekend would be hosting all my closest friends and family at a cookout/ campout. Food grilling, catching up, drinking beers around a bonfire, watching the kids catch lightning bugs or play hide and seek late into the night. Waking up the next morning and cooking breakfast for everyone, drinking coffee together before everyone goes their separate ways.

What’s your favorite drink?
Bourbon and Sweet Tea.

How often do you people watch?
All the time. It’s one of my favorite things to do. You can tell alot about someone by what they do when their guard is down.

What have you only recently formed an opinion about?
Politics. I’ve always been invested in social and environmental issues but never took much of a political position until a few years ago.

What’s the best single day on the calendar?
That’s a tough one. I’d have to say April 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, and all you need is a light jacket.

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
Live a little.

Would you rather go hang gliding or whitewater rafting?
Whitewater rafting. Although, I recently conquered my fear of heights, it still feels alot like exposure therapy to be up that high.

What’s worth spending more on to get the best?
Travel and food. Experiences that come from travel are invaluable and will lead to a longer, better life. High quality, healthy food will do the same thing.

What are you most looking forward to in the next 10 years?
Becoming wiser and more cantankerous. Watching my tiny humans become adults.

What amazing thing did you do that no one was around to see?
Knocked a cup over with my left elbow and caught it with my left hand.

What quirks do you have?
All of them. I’m a loveable tangle of awkwardness.

What fad or trend do you hope comes back?
I don’t really follow fads or trends anymore. I like what I like and I wear it. I do gravitate toward flower child and grunge, though. I dress for whatever character or part of my personality I am feeling like that day.

What kind of art do you enjoy most?
Abstract. Jackson Pollock’s work is some of the most interesting abstract art I’ve ever seen. Colors, drips and splatters that are seemingly disorganized and chaotic but try to recreate that yourself and you’ll understand it’s beautiful controlled madness.

What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?
There’s a lot of things. Um, probably, Earth Day. Why we should keep it alive.

I like doing plays that are old-fashioned, cause they help me learn a lot. Like they say “back in the day we didn’t have underwear, we just wore dirty old rags.” You’d probably get infections in places that you don’t want a doctor to see.

What was the best book or series that you’ve ever read?
The Giver. It’s really good and interesting. I think the book is better than the movie. In my opinion. Books have more detail.

Probably in my dreams, because, um, I had, like, a dream that there was like so much stuff in a museum that I loved and it was called Abby-topia and it was so cool. It had slime, squishies, electronics, friends, family. Yea. And it had spelling bees and I won that trophy. *points to shelf* The one I won in real life.

What’s something you’ve been meaning to try but just haven’t gotten around to it?
