Rob's Story

Rob has always liked the woods. In fact he likes the woods so much he became set on finding the best woods there is. He has journeyed south of the equator to the rainforests of South America. He has explored the vast wilderness of his backyard in the woods of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. He has ventured west by visiting the diversity of Olympic National Park and the High Sierras. He's even paddled to new territories in Maine and the Everglades. His goal is nothing more than finding some quality woods, traveling through them, and finding what they hold. This site is intended to share some of his experiences in the hopes that you will seek out those same woods and hopefully become inspired to find some woods of your own.
