I am Mad Dog Reno (call me Reno), a way-of-life-cowboy. I've
been living like this for over ten years. Means that I wear like
cowboys and have learned very much of cowboyskills like riding,
shooting, roping and so on, and I really like these things and
want to learn more.
I used to be married
for many years, but we divorced some years ago. I have four children
but they live with their mother in an other town. After we had
divorced I was working in The Wild West Village on Ähtäri
as a cowboy, and there I met the wild cat of my life, WildCat
Annie. Together we have made this Wild West hobby larger. One
of our favourite things is to pack our wall tent, pot belly stove,
guns and other equipments into our car and make a long drive
to somewhere, wherever we can meet people with same spirit. We
have a lot of mates in this hobby and it goes larger and larger.
Nowadays I sometimes like to wear as a mountain man, I have even
made an own mountain man outfit.
I was The President
of The Classic Old Western Society of Finland (C.O.W.S) for four
years, I gave that duty away. Now I am leader of buckskinners
section. I still am one of the most active persons in that association.
C.O.W.S is very important for me because I'm one of the members
who created it, and I'm very pleased every time when somebody
wants to hear about C.O.W.S, Cowboy Action Shooting or any other
thing in this hobby. These things are my life, and I couldn't
live in any other way.
