Dale traveled from coast to coast filming off-road 4-wheel drive trails where he met many people who were privileged to know him! He was a trail guide for Jeep Jamboree and touched many people throughout the world. Dale would give you the shirt off his back and his wit and humor were unparalleled. He enjoyed many hobbies, he was a commercial pilot and a hot air balloon pilot, snowmobiler, hiker, and hunter. Dale's most favorite activity was spending time with his family in the outdoors.
