He loved photography, camping, four wheel driving, shooting, riding ATVs, going to the Moab Car Show, Moab Jeep Safari, the car races and watching Nascar. He was an avid bodybuilder and enjoyed working out at the gym. Mike had restored several old cars and hot rods which we enjoyed at the Moab car show. Mike was so creative in building and inventing one of a kind things. He changed his whole entire backyard into an old-fashioned ghost town and would create the most awesome camp trailers that were versatile and easy to use. He loved the company of many friends and threw the best parties at the saloon that he built in his ghost town.
