Roots and Game is a blog that we decided to create for the sole purpose of sharing our thoughts and experiences while chronicling some of our outdoor activities. Since we have known each other, we both have thoroughly enjoyed creating, cultivating, and/or harvesting the things provided to us from the natural world. We both are Pennsylvania natives and consider our home to be from the farmlands under the shadow of Chestnut Ridge to the hardwood forests bound by the northern reaches of the Allegheny River.
Getting advice from other people has helped us in our continued effort to learn as much as we can about what the great outdoors has to offer. We hope that by writing about some of our experiences we can help others explore the natural world also.
We have many great friends and family that enjoy being outdoors as much, if not more, then we do. We have learned a great deal from all of our friends. There are many resources written by people that have PHD’s in many outdoor skills, like wild herb gathering or whitetail hunting, to name a few. We don’t claim to be experts in any of our activities. Our only claim is that we have an affinity for enjoying every moment we get to spend outside.
