    Default New Member from Michigan

    Hi everyone,

    I want to introduce myself.
    I just signed up, but have been a wooden boat lover for about 15 years.
    I am a forester by profession which is why I chose Foerster (German spelling) for a forum name, you could say my life revolves around trees and wood. I just moved back to Michigan and can't wait to get my Penobscot 14 back on the water. Looking forward to learning and contributing here.

    Sincerely,

    Foerster

    fellow michigander here, welcome to the forum
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Welcome back to Michigan!

    If you haven't found them yet, look up the Heritage 23 group in Tawas. http://heritage-23.org They've got a Penobscot 14 in their fleet.

    Förster, there are various ways to get a German alphabet up on your computer but for this one off I just googled "umlaut O" and then copied an example. You could probably even copy the whole name from here and just store it someplace.

    Foerster, Welcome to the forum. I am also a forester. I chose timber cruiser as my login name since that was my first job after getting my forestry degree from UW-Madison. When I first applied for the job, I had no idea what a timber cruiser did, but I thought it was a terrific title. Turned out to be timber inventory work, measured and graded trees, and more importantly I got paid to walk around in the woods all day.

    East Tawas is a beautiful part of Michigan.

    I've done plenty of timber cruising myself, it's one of my favorite parts of the job. Unfortunately I hardly ever get to do it anymore.
