Segment number seven.
One of your questions was: "Did my job take me away from the office?" Well it did. It involved quite a bit of travel. I figured that during my career here at the Forest Products Laboratory I traveled around 35 to 40 percent of the time, which in reality is quite a bit of time away from the office. But in order to get it all done you had to travel and of course you had to work with the state agencies and you had to attend meetings. I traveled quite a bit back into Washington, D.C. where my bosses were located to get my marching orders. My job was very challenging as well as fulfilling and I felt like we contributed to the mission that was before us, which was to extend our nation's resources.
