What they're saying...


America's heartland: People from all over the world often think of our (America's) finest qualities/greatest achievements as New York City or Los Angeles or even Dallas, Texas. Well, I am just going to have to disagree in formidable fashion.

We are/the world is short sighted if they see our nation's greatest achievements as NYC, LA or San Francisco or Dallas, Texas. Although a part of our nation they are not even close to our finest. I will use one example and humbly bow to others' opinions.

I have flown all over the world and met people from every walk of life. Most people want a life of happiness, family, love and goodness to surround them. I believe that one of the greatest qualities of America is Love. The idea that we all want our neighbors to be happy and to be at peace.

A few weeks ago I visited a place that I would call the "Heartland of America". True America! We ofthen think of South Dakota as a place that is flat and filled with fields of nothingness. Now, I had visited/over nighted in SD many times but had never truyly met SD. We as Americans tend to make quick assertions as to ones characteror a place's value. I had short changed SD drastically in my assertion!

South Dakota: Under God the people rule, ring-necked pheasants in golden, never-ending fields of maze that would take a persons breath away, pasque flower, strams so full of brook trout that it would cause any fisherman to stand and stare. The Black Hills and Mount Rushmore. Most importantly: hard working, kind, goodhearted, loving, salt of the earth, strong people.

The American Wingshooting Lodge in Platte, SD, is one of America's finest assets. Why, you say? Well, first they are a family that loves America. They love God and love their family and friends. The Hoffman family is, in my opinion, a pillar of America. The Hoffmans own a farm in the heartlnad and all work hard at being the fiber that holds our country together. Bill farms, runs the American Wiingshooting Lodge, guides and runs a couple other businesses on the side. Cary is Bill's wife and is an amazing chef and keeps the family running. Mrs. Hoffman holds down the fort and keeps its hunters fed, housed and keeps all documentation up to date so the hunters don't get in trouble on top of taking care of her husband, 5 bedroom home, 4 girls ages 178 to 2. Mama Hoffman (Bill's mother) even helps out in the feeding and housing of the hunters. The girls are all busy with school, sports and being a wonderful family. Bill's best friend Toby also helps out by joining Bill in running the huynts and the side business.

I will end this overview of American Wingshooting Lodge/The Hoffman family/South Dakota by saying: If you want to see real America and want to meet reeal America...Go stay with the Hoffmans and experience America at its finest. Hospitality, Grace, Goodness, Kindness, Family and Hard Work.

Organic, Beautiful, Breathtaking and so much that it makes you almost want to get down and hug the ground. Thank you God for South Dakota and all it does for America.
