About Hookski
Joined April 2016
Hi my name is Kenny. I am from southern Illinois. I love awesome adventures that create lasting memories, that the average person can afford. I learned to drive a semi truck while in the U. S. Army. I have driven a semi truck over 2 million miles in W. Germany, Canada and in the all the lower 48 states of the U. S., over a span of 17 years. I have since owned/built a successful freight brokerage until the economy crashed in 2008. I am currently the operations manager for a small trucking company.

I was owner/editor of Thunder Roads Magazine / Missouri/Southern Illinois edition 2003 and 2004. It demanded additional time than I could dedicate as I was involved in my freight brokerage full time but I can say it was very enjoyable gig. It was free publication supported by the advertisers.

I have whitewater rafting experience, Class 5+ rapids as well as leisurely floats.
I have rafted the Arkansas, Colorado and Gauley rivers to mention a few.

I enjoy 4 wheeling in the mountains off the beaten path. I enjoy easy, moderate and difficult trails in central and southwestern Colorado and the Moab, Utah area.

In 2012 at 52 years old I decided to get an open water scuba certification. I wish I had started scuba at a much younger age. I have had tremendous enjoyment diving in Aruba, Curacao, Mexico, Belize, and Honduras.
I have hot air ballooned in the Rocky and Smokey mountains.

When I'm not on an adventure I enjoy a good texas hold'em game. I love the strategy it takes to win consistently. Anyone can get lucky and beat the best once in awhile, consistency is profitable.

I would like to be earning about 1500 a month to subsidize my income by the end of the 2017 and would like to be earning $5000+ a month and be a travel writer before I give up my 9 to 5.

I'm not sure if I'm qualified to respond to your goals but it seems to be part of level 2, lesson 10 so here you go. First, any goal is good in the sense that it gives you a target to shoot at. Personally, I think we set our monetary goals way too soon. I only say this because one of the basic tenets of goal setting is that the goal must be reachable. I've been in WA for over 30 days and I still don't really know what is achievable therefore I don't know if my goal is realistic yet. I refuse to get caught up in the pie in the sky mentality that says you can do anything you want. But I like a challenge.
As to the time you spend, the more the better. There is a steep learning curve (at least for me) so digging in and putting forth sincere effort will help you up that hill. Best wishes for your future success - however you choose to define it.

Hey Kenneth! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. I was checking your profile and saw it hasn't quite been setup yet. I thought I'd share this video in case there were any problems on your end: Definitely get your account setup. It'll lead to better help within the community. You'll make a better connection with other members with a picture and a short description. We are all people after all.

Anyway, let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! Look forward to seeing you around the site more! :)

Hey Kenneth and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Kenneth, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
