Tad Pierson is the owner of American Dream Safari tours. He is an artist, story teller and font of information. We are graciously invited into Pierson’s home for this episode which is also his studio. A playground for the senses, we are surrounded by his art, tools, and Airstream travel trailors that also double as rooms in this residence. Hopefully this episode will inspire you to take a trip or hear some live music in a new place. Enjoy.
