Very cool. I have a stockman and I love it. Hop town isn't too far from me either, my sister-in-law is from there so that makes it special too.
My pa used to talk about gathering wild chestnuts. He loved chestnuts, and so do I. He would always talk about how the old wild ones were better than these oriental ones we have now. Can you imagine what the deer would look like if we still had the number of chestnut trees that they claim we had in the early 20 th century? Wow!
There were a handful of trees that survived the blight, and work is being done to reintroduce the native chestnut. I hope I live to see it in my lifetime.
