Introduction

I am a roadie and I either ride my Specialized aluminum frame commuter to work or ride my Specialized Tarmac carbon for distance rides. I have enjoyed the 8-day Bike Across Kansas a few times and look forward to many more long distance rides. I would really like to ride the Nez Perce Trail someday, but that is a 6-month ride if you follow the dates of the War of 1877. In the meantime, I am also developing/reparing a series of woodland roads on Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, for bikers, trail runners, walkers, dog walkers, cross country skiers, and horse riders since I am the Forester responsible for the woodlands.

Besides that, I really enjoy working with wool (I use sheep to manage our military lands) and spinning, weaving, felting, and also oil painting and wood working (Forester, duh).

Wow, that sounds like a nice occupation! How many sheep are grazing on Fort Leavenworth? Any breed in particular?

Do you have any photos of your work (wool/painting/woodworking)?

Welcome to BF!

Welcome, Woolman. As a knitter, I find your line of work fascinating.
