What/who changed my life and why Spending summers up at my parents' cabin in the woods of northern Minnesota as a kid. Far enough away from the city so there were only dirt bikes and jet skis on the weekends--otherwise it was living in the time of the Ojibwe. We had no plumbing, minimal electrisity.
