About Us

We are your average couple living in small town middle America.  With the world becoming more dangerous everyday we have decided to take personal responsibility for our safety.  But how does one go about that?  Join us as we learn together and share our adventures with this little podcast project.   Who knows?  Maybe we will even have a little fun along the way!

She now volunteer’s with Project Appleseed administration and is working to become an Appleseed instructor.

Toby is now a volunteer instructor with Project Appleseed.

    I would like to listen to your podcast but the only one I have been able to download to my mp3 player is #6. I listen while driving to/from work (long drive!) instead of my radio. I am usually able to download the files for the ‘casts I listen to direct from the website but your links will only refer me to an html link that won’t let me save the file as an mp3. What am I doing wrong? I don’t have time to sit next to my computer to listen to the show and I don’t use my phone to listen to podcasts.

    Dear Toby and Melisa,
    I just listened to your podcast for the first time last night. I have been listening to the Squirrels podcast for a while but after hearing the joint podcast you did with Glen Tate I had to come check this out. Y’all did a great job with Roadgunner and I thank you for introducing me to that podcast as well.
    I’ll be listening to as many of your archived podcast as I can on Stitcher and I really want to hear what Melisa has to say so I can try to relate to my wife and convince her that she needs some training.
    You folks are great, thank you for the service you provide. By the way, I too am a truck driver so a lot our way of thinking is the same.

    Congrats to Melisa on going solo. Really good job on the interview with Shawn. And it’s always good to hear from The Unnamed Trucker and from Glen Tate. I think your podcasts are getting much better with each release…and I look forward to your each new show. Thanks for doing the podcast and keep up the good work!
