My name is Steve Jostes. I have lived in Nebraska my whole life and graduated high school from Lutheran High in Norfolk, NE. I joined the Navy Reserves right out of high school and in 2008 I was deployed to Al Asad, Iraq, to start up customs inspections out of the country. After I returned to the States, I went back to college at Concordia University and just graduated May 5th with a degree in Biology and Geography. I have spent my life outside and I’m always happiest when I’m outdoors. My hobbies include hunting, ﬁshing, 4-wheeling, camping, and backpacking. As I write this I am actually on my way back from a 10 day camping/backpacking trip to California. I can’t wait to get out to the Black Hills and meet everyone.
