This website, its content, the hundreds of associations with folks of all
backgrounds on seven continents that have resulted over the past
two-plus decades would not exist if it weren’t for the inspiration,
kindness, mentoring and the dogs from one man.
All of us, our wealth of relationships and what we have shared and
learned through The Fan Hitch over these years are
singularly indebted to Jayko!
