In the fall of 1993, Terra met Willie Jones, and on December 5, 1994, they wed on a catamaran off the coast of Maui, Hawaii. Willie is a lifetime farmer and outdoorsman. When not running the farm, they set out on many adventures, from fishing in Ketchikan, Alaska, to driving through Alaska and Canada and across America. They went on several hunting trips.
