LaRocque is my grandpa's last name on my mother's side. And Shaughnessy is my grandma's last name, and I decided to keep it traditionally Irish and at the "O" to the name. They both lived in Newcomb. Moved to Minerva a while later where I spent most of my summers as a child.

I figured I'd use their names become simply that is where they were from. Plus I have a deeper connection with my mother's side of the family.

I love wild flowers and wild herbs. I used this spelling to be just a little different.

Love Ladyslippers and Red Trillium.

When I attended college in Potsdam, NY, my landlord had a garden of wildflowers including Yellow Lady Slipper, Maidenhair Fern, Solomon Seal, and other great things. I have special memories from Potsdam. I think that's when (1983 - 85) my first affection for wildflowers began. Wildflowers remind me of my experience in Potsdam where I attended Crane School of Music. I'm so lucky.

Someday, I'll have a garden like Betty's, my land lord from Potsdam.

"Lute" is technically not my first name, but is a conglomeration of my first and middle names, Lucius Terrapin.

Well Dustin is my first name. I don't know why I didn't think of something more clever for a user name, I think I was just really anxious to become a member of the site and never gave it a second thought. My avatar is the Tooth of Time at BSA's Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. That was an amazing time and am looking forward to getting back into scouting. I don't have any kids, am only 24 (25 in a month) and work all the time and sometimes out of town. If anyone has any advice or need for a volunteer in your Boy Scout troop in the Syracuse area, PM me.

I grew up hunting and fishing the West Canada Creek in Noblesboro where the family camp is. Favorite rifle is the 30-30, Mod.64 that was owned by my grandfather.

Great grandfather was Trume Haskell.

The canoe my dad and I paddled in the 1960's was named Wendigo. At the time, all I knew about the name was it had something to do with indians.

Little did I know what the name really meant. But, I still like the name and I promise I won't eat anyone.

It's what I do, both as a ranger and as a volunteer. Ski patrol in the winter and bike patrol the rest of the year.

MudRat came to pass when WWBF and I hiked Seymour/Seward/Don/Emmons in 2004...We just happened to hike it during the 1 calm day after the remnants of Hurricane Charlie and before Tropical Storm Bonnie's remnants blew in. Knee deep mud "stuck" with me via the trailname
May you always be a student of the journey. God Bless.
