FIRE AND ICE: STIVERS' ICELAND RESEARCH VACATION
I'll be leaving in 8 days for Iceland. This will be a research vacation of 11 days. I'm traveling with my eldest son Garrett. We'll be circumnavigating the Island, traveling 1,000 - 1,200 miles. I'll be researching Iceland's community base afforestation (building forest). Prior to the Norsemen arrival, Iceland's coast was covered with forest, approximately 30% of the Island. Norsemen removed 95% of the forest for building material, fuel, grazing and farming. Iceland wants to bring back those forest and I want to find out how they plan on doing that. Sound interesting? Follow my blog! It would be as if you're right there with me.
