Mary Preisel grew up in the Allegheny National Forest, with which she credits cultivating her love of trees and the outdoors.
Back to Blog
Since this is the first official blog post of the first official blog, I wanted to start things off with a, "Hi, how are ya?"
Your narrator for the duration will be me, Mary. Comments are welcome and highly encouraged (blogging can sometimes sound like a lot of crickets...)! If there's a topic you are interested in, please let me know, I love writing suggestions.
So, some background on the orator of this journey...as you can see to your right, I grew up in the woods--Tionesta, PA to be specific. Lots of beauty, lots of hunting, lots of camps. Less people, less stoplights, less run-of-the-mill entertainment (restaurants, movies, much-to-do, what-have-you). Made for a very creative, outdoorsy upbringing.
Besides this blog (and some other freelance pieces) I write short stories, newspaper articles, and childrens books. I love Seinfeld references, SNL, and Will Ferrel movies. I love to cook and am the master of 2 very lively dogs (master might be an exaggeration, these are VERY lively dogs).
I started this blog because, well, blogs are fun. What you can hope for in the future...
lots of information on weird trees and cool tree house ideas...links to interesting articles I find and my take on them (hilarity included)...maybe some backpacking tips, definitely some good tree stories from the job...possibly a recipe or 2, gardening info...again, suggestions highly encouraged! Did I mention I also love feedback??
I think this is a good start to our blossoming relationship and I'm tired of talking about myself, so with that I will end this one-sided conversation. Adieu and I'll meet you back here next time.
