Sunday, January 7


Welcome to my new blog one and all. Since the completion of my Appalachian journey, I've wanted to create a new blog to keep everyone informed of my whereabouts. Of course I have had a bit of encouragement from some of my closest friends and family who have become bored with the stagnancy of the Georgia To Maine blog. So sorry to the many folks who repeatedly check that blog only to find that there have been no updates since mid-October.

There are always lists of things to accomplish when a new year rolls around. This year has been no exception, my list consisted of two tasks. On the top of the list: find a job. Second in line on the list was to create my new blog. I am happy to report both of those items have been resolved already. On the 5th of January, I accepted a full-time volunteer position with Montana Conservation Corps for a six month term of service. My position title is "Senior Youth Crew Leader". Part of my job is to recruit 14-17 year olds to serve on one of my two conservation crews this summer. I will also get to help plan and prepare for the conservation projects that my crews will address. I'm super excited about this opportunity and can't wait to see what new experiences will come my way. By the way, if you know of anyone who lives in Billings, Montana, that might be able to help me find housing let me know. So now that my blog has been created, and my new year's resolutions completed, I can breathe easy. Whew, what a great start to a new year!

So as you can imagine it is with great anticipation that I welcome the new year in with the many new experiences that will undoubtedly unfold in 2007. And with the help of the internet, this blog, and email, we can hopefully share many of life's important moments even though we are hundreds of miles apart.

Best of luck with the new job, it sounds like an exciting opportunity. I have to confess that I probably will not be making a trip out to Montana for a visit but I am thankful I was able to visit with you and the Gottschalk family over the holidays! Can't wait to hear stories from your new adventure! Careful with the chainsaw!
