Who is Walt Dozer Dillard?

Walt is a traveling man. He's crossed the state for 15 years and has operated on some of the most inspiring construction projects possible. He got a sensitivity for gold when he was employed to build a highway to the Fort Knox Gold Mine in Alaska.

His goal is to demonstrate himself as a top-class machinist and wants to teach the younger folks how to do a job right. He's got the skills to back that up as he started functioning machinery at the age of18 and has 20 years of knowledge. What's more, he guesses he's moved over 200 million yards of dust – all with his dog Sasha by his side.
