Inside Todd Palin

He may or may not be Mr. Sarah Palin any longer, but the father of 5, married to his high school sweetheart is a true Alaska son.  When I think of Alaska, I think of lots of dogs per household, gun racks and everyone has a pilots license.  This certainly makes the Alaska Native a shoe in.  He owns a Piper PA-18 Super Cub and is a certified pilot.  I think we all know the gun part and dogs.

Palin was born in Dillingham, Alaska and has roots in the Yup’ik and Curyung tribes.  Palin has spent the majority of his life working in the oil industry and has a high school, but not a college degree.  He is an avid snowmobile rider and has won the pro Tesoro Iron Dog Championships.  In the 2008 race he crashed and was thrown 70 feet from his machine.

Recent reports say Palin is going to work back in the oil fields which has led to speculations of divorce.  The Ski Channel has shown Todd riding numerous time.  Good luck Todd.  Marriage is tough!
