Happy New Year! Here's to 2018. It's a funny feeling really because I am more excited this year than ever before as this new year begins. I feel like 2018 will be a year of transition. My pal, Fischer, also seems to have an extra spring in his step since the new year began.
Fischer - on this morning's early hike
To celebrate 2018 I thought I'd formally introduce Fischer who has been my 'sidekick' since his birth in 2010 (he's turning 8 this year) and he's provided constant support since the launch of Tonewood in 2012. I couldn't have started down this crazy, entrepreneurial path without him. Fischer sleeps under my desk, sits 'shotgun' in my truck, has joined in a Tonewood photo shoot, follows me into the garage to package up product, and best of all, he is my companion in the sugarwoods. We've had endless adventures together, collecting sap, mountain biking, backcountry skiing, hiking and just peacefully wandering and listening to the trees together.
