Favorite type of music: Country.

Favorite meal: The fish and game that we go catch in Alaska. Salmon and halibut and moose meat.

Have you ever eaten walleye? I have had walleye down here. I'm not sure if it's good to eat what you are. I don't know if that is good luck.

Favorite beverage: Vernors. It's nice being here because it's hard to find at home.
