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.

Rehab Timeline: Memorial Day 2013


As part of my rehab timeline, one of my short-term goals is to participate in this year's West Side Memorial Day Parade in Kingston, PA. If all goes well, I hope to be able to do so without using crutches or braces.  
 
It'll be tough lining up at the Forty-Fort Cemetery for the first time in my life without my Dad standing next to me, but in addition to all of the memories I have of Memorial Days gone by, I truly believe that the Spirit(s) of '76 will fall in line just like they have every year since my great-grandfather began the tradition in 1891.
