Writer's block solved by wolves

Earlier today, I complained that I've got a horrible case of writer's block.

It turns out that maybe I just need a new hobby.

Did someone say, "You should volunteer to be a wolf tracker?"

According to an Associated Press report, the Wisconsin DNR is renewing its plea for volunteer wolf trackers. Apparently, these fearless wolf fans found almost 800 wolves across the state from December to March, which is presumably when wolves wander around Wisconsin.

It's true that I enjoy "True Blood," and that show has a lot of wolf stuff going on. Perhaps tracking real live wolves this winter is just what I need to stave off Season Affective Disorder.

The only challenge to my future hobby is the location of the tracker training sessions: they take place over the next month in Ashland, Babcock and Tomahawk. That's a pretty long commute for a volunteer project. The DNR also recommends taking a wolf ecology class, which seems like a good idea.

So, who wants to join my wolf pack?
