If you’ve seen us at a gas station or festival or maybe you followed us to our hotel from the freeway you probably got a souvenir postcard of our truck on the front and the various fun facts on the back. Such as how many french fries the 6 ton potato would make (1.4 million). How long it would take to grow (10,000 years). Or how long it would take to bake it (just 2 years 9 months).  So I thought it would be neat to do this post about fun facts about the tater team.

LARRY 45, Born in Boise, ID

What do your friends call you?

Well, currently it’s Lar Bear.  In the Army, it was Jada Prettyboy.

Do you have any odd talents? 

I don’t know if it counts as a talent, but I am the most creative person I’ve ever known. I’ve always got either a thought or a bit of music, going on in my head. When you see me staring off into the distance, I’m actually being talented.

What is your favorite book?

I’m not fond of reading books. I would much rather write one than I ever would want to read one. I think I get more enjoyment out of telling the tale myself.

Who is your favorite musical artist or what kind of music do you listen to?

I like a bit of all kinds of music. I’m more fond of types which have no singing, but I like good lyrics as well. Pink Floyd has been a favorite of mine for the longest time. My favorite band as of late, however, is Pearl Jam.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?

I do have a guilty pleasure or two, but the telling of secrets, isn’t one.

What do your friends call you?

Sometimes Kris when I was little my family called me kissyfer.

Do you have any odd talents? 

None that I can think of…

What is your favorite book?

I love reading and have way too many favorites. A recent favorite is Mistakes were Made but Not by Me by Tavris and Aronson.

Who is your favorite musical artist or what kind of music do you listen to?

I like country music but I love old country like Hank Williams and Patsy Cline.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?

I find no guilt in the pleasurable but if I had to choose it would be super hot baths.
