* “How to Build a Backyard Treehouse,” Popular Mechanics, March 2010
For the past five years, I’ve enjoyed your writing and adventures, specifically in PM and PS. My family and I just relocated to Appomattox, Virginia and we have some great Oak and Walnut trees on our small farm. I conducted an engine search on tree houses and your 2010 article was one of the first that surfaced.
Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and experiences. I’ll benefit over the next year as we build our own tiny “above ground fortress” to protect and nurture the imaginations of our family. Thanks!
Hi, Greg. Sounds like you’re in for some fun! I’d love to know how the project turns out. Best of luck. Logan
I am almost done with your book, See you in a Hundred Years. What a great book. My husband and I live in Swoope and bought a small 1816 farm about the time you did. We are not originally from this area, and I found the book humerous and interesting. I must say, I am not thrilled how the roosters were killed..ugh. Also, we love our post lady Jeanie and cannot wait to hear her reaction about her in the book!! Any new books coming out?

Hi Sally! It’s nice to know you’re enjoying the book. Being a Swoopian (Swooper? Swoopester?), you’ve got an interesting perspective. If you see Jeannie, please give her my best!
I just finished your book, having waited years for it to be available on my Kindle – finally breaking down and reading it the old fashioned way! I have to say I envy you the experience, although not the backbreaking work. I am surprised you gave up gardening so easily, but am glad you are doing it on a smaller scale once again. I grew up, and lived only in big cities, but have always been nostalgic for self-reliance of the ‘old’ ways. Any time I can participate in any way I feel so fulfilled. My tiny community garden plot isn’t as successful as I’d hoped, but I totally love every aspect of the seed to table activities.
