Interesting Trivia about Digger:
- loves the water and to paddle, especially kayaking and canoeing
- Digger finds a lot of joy in cooking for others. He gathers a lot of his own food and loves to share it. Just recently, he took a skunk to a potluck. (Skunk is quite fatty and good but most people expect it to taste like it smells.)
- Digger’s nickname was given to him because someone thought Doug was past tense and passive (dug), whereas Digger is active.
- He lives in a yurt year-round in Montana.
- For the last 17 years, Digger has made almost all of his own clothing. He primarily wears clothing that he’s made from hides. Every once in a while you’ll see him in a sweater.
