Gary & Marilyn Pinder

Years in Industry:   Since 2012

About Us:  We were both raised on a farm and have been involved in the cattle industry for all of our lives. Married in 1970, raised 3 daughters, all married and have 4 granddaughters and 2 grandsons. Sold the last of our cow herd in 2012 when we traveled to Australia/ New Zealand. We now consider ourselves semi retired and custom graze cattle, freeing up time for travel. It is amazing to see the diversity of cultures, meet interesting people (both local and fellow travelers) and enjoy the scenery of different countries.

Favorite Trip/ Destination: Disneyland with all of our family.

Why: It was a joy to watch our grandchildren (then ranging from age 5-11) have so much fun!!

Favorite Activities: Gary is all about the outdoors- horses, cattle, riding in the mountains.  Marilyn enjoys reading, gardening, doing counted cross stitch and is a relatively new quilter. Family time is special to both of us.

Favorite Food: Gary's is "anything sweet" and Marilyn's is ham and scalloped potatoes.

Places of Travel:   Most of Canada and several of the US states, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, Kenya, Tanzania, Argentina, Chile, Ireland, Scotland, India,
Switzerland, Peru, Ecuador, Galapagos, day trips in several other countries.

Cruises:  10 cruises to Alaska, Hawaii, Panama, Mexican Riviera and Southern Caribbean, 1 Mississippi River Boat and 1 River cruise on the Rhine.
