I grew up in Maryland but German was my first language.  It’s rusty as a tetanus nail but Germans are always linguistically generous as I periodically travel across the country to interview foresters and forestland owners about their practices and philosophies.  Most interesting has been what I learned in former East Germany, not only about their way of life but about ours as well.  In addition to the stories listed here I’ve written about travel, recycling, cranes, and other topics.
