    Greetings from Upstate NY, USA

    It's a pleasure to be here on Skaldi. I'm always looking for good conversation, learning new things, sharing what knowledge and thoughts I have, and meeting new people who share a love of European history and culture.

    A few things about myself:

    Living and working in NYC was somewhat fun for a time, but I have since traded that lifestyle in for the quiet and simple country life. On this land, I have the great opportunity of starting a commercial heirloom (specifically European) apple/pear/plum orchard.

    Making cider and eau de vie has been a hobby of mine for some time and I hope to start selling commercially. Additionally, I'm interested in heritage breed livestock and growing Vitis venifera grapes as well, but that is several years away from now.

    When I'm not outside, or going for walks in the woods, I like to keep up with current events and environmental activism online, read many books, cook from scratch, and learn traditional skills (knitting, quilting, etc.).

    Music and art are also a very strong influence in my life. My main instruments are cello, guitar, bass, mandolin, dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, and I'm learning the fiddle right now. My tastes range from classical to traditional folk to black metal - anything done well, really.

    This forum seems like a great place for intelligent discussion and I look forward to meeting you all!

    It's a pleasure to have you here, just be advised: this forum and its debate focuses on Germanic heritage, not European.

    The best of luck with the apple/pear/plum orchard - and you get bonus points from me for leading a rural life!

    Can't even get the Scandinavians to agree on Scandinavianism and they want Europeanism!

    Thanks for the welcome and correction! I do look forward to discussion and debate on Germanic heritage.

    I will also take all the luck I can get with respects to the orchard and other endeavors. The weather here can be quite fickle!

    Thank you for the welcome! It's a pleasure to meet someone from Trondheim. From photographs, it looks like quite a beautiful place.

    Thank you for welcoming me. I love upstate NY much more than where I used to live (NYC). Hopefully you get the chance to visit your family here every now and then; it's beautiful here!

    Welcome to Skadi. I have family near both Lake Eire & Lake Ontario. There is a lot of great land for trees and farming.

    Hello, and greetings, LadyDetenebrate. Yes, upstate NY is beautiful, I'm from the Flower City, but currently reside in the Bristol hills. Have fun here at Skadi and good luck with your fruit growing endeavors.

    Welcome to Skadi, without L. We are not a community of Skalds - yet



    Although... Germany in particular has been known as a country of poets and thinkers in former times
