To All First Time Visitors

I've noticed a significant increase in the number of first time visitors in the past 30 days.

First & foremost: Welcome!

As a brief intro; I've been blogging since 1999. I have a degree in Earth & Environmental Science, and have twice taken the Susquehanna River to the #1 spot on American Rivers annual "Most Endangered" list; first in 2005 and again in 2011. I stopped counting when I hit the 2,000 mile mark paddling on the Susquehanna.

When it comes to my favorite river and the environmental challenges it continues to face, I've forgotten more than most of the newly-ordained "experts" out there. To that end, I've scaled back my public activism over the past few years out of sheer frustration at the (mostly) clueless cacophony coming from the new crop of wannabes seeking their 15 seconds of...whatever.

Unfortunately, I'm getting restless again.

Stay tuned.

Twixt Disdain and Disgust


As I watch all the back and forth going on in Washington regarding the approaching fiscal cliff, I keep wondering where our modern-day leaders are?

Republican, Democrat...doesn't matter. With one or two exceptions, I wouldn't follow any of them down a well-marked Boy Scout trail.

BTW, I've removed a NEPA blogger from my blogroll due to some recent comments posted on Facebook wishing George H.W. Bush an early death. Whatever the man did or did not do in his life, he doesn't deserve that.

Please feel free to reciprocate. I won't be offended in the least.
