Hi everyone. This is John The Midwest Flatlander, and welcome to midwestflatlander.com where the land is flat, the dreams are big, and nature's beauty is second to none. I know many of you are probably thinking "It's so flat there, what could you possibly do to have fun?" Well, a lot actually which is the point of this blog. Sharing knowledge and ideas and inspiration from the flat land is the reason this blog exists. Opportunities for grilling, gardening, hunting, fishing, camping, backpacking (yes backpacking) are all abundant on the flat land. My goal is to share them with you and maybe, just maybe, inspire you to take time for your own adventures whether you live on the flat land or not. So sit back and enjoy the adventure as we explore the flat land and find inspiration for this adventure we call life, and remember leave no trace...leave a legacy.
