Milton also helped grind sorghum cane at the Gnaw Bone Sorghum Mill and logged with horses for a short time with his brother, Eddie.

One of Milton’s memorable trips was to Australia in the early 90’s. The plane ride, his first, consisted of a 27-hour trip to Australia. His thirty-day trip consisted of fishing, living in the outback and riding one of the horses that was used in the making of his favorite movie, “Man from Snowy River”.
Milton enjoyed the outdoors by gardening, trail riding at the Brown County State Park or simply sitting on his front porch in rural Brown County. He loved being with his family and playing with his grandchildren.
