When Neal is not tending to the Time Bandit, he owns and operates a hydroseeding and landscape business that keeps him busy through much of the spring and summer. He recently purchased and renovated a home for himself and his wife, Debbie. Neal has two grown sons, Phillip and Axel, and enjoys spending time with them whenever possible.
