In 1965, Mike moved with his parents to Oregon, which became his on again off again home while moving to various towns with his mother and father where his Wayne worked for the US Forest Service.

In 1982, Mike moved to McKenzie County, North Dakota and became a technician and drafter for the McKenzie County Road Department within the engineer’s office, where he worked for 33 years.
