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.

Annual Susquehanna "Penguin Plunge"


I've paddled in the Susquehanna in January...but I'd probably think thrice about taking a plunge into its icy waters as a fundraiser on the first day of the new year.

Anyway, check out Sam Getty's pics of the annual "Penguin Plunge" that took place yesterday near Harrisburg. The dude with the suntan oil was actually on the right track, although I'm sure he still experienced some significant shrinkage once he hit the water.

Hope they did a thorough headcount back at the county jail to insure all residents were accounted for.




Happy New Year to all.

Be back in a few.
