Ike also enjoyed going to tractor pulls, plow days, the sale barn, and the coffee shop. He liked camping at Wildwoods, giving hay rides, doing weenie roasts, and being with his dog, Digger. Ike loved spending time with his girls and Nancy and enjoyed the Sunday drives that he and Nancy would take. Another activity Ike was proud of was befriending teenage kids and having them help around the farm to teach them responsibility and good work ethic all while having fun.
