Planted into his late forties maybe 50's
Nominated more times than any other person for the tree planting hall of fame
Ran a company called "Puck" which failed
Has been referred to publicly as "legend" and "ubermensch"
Things I've heard
He is a badass
He is an alcoholic
He pulls stumps out of the ground with his bare hands in order to build bridges across waterbars
He has had his shoulder replaced
He has destroyed his body by planting
"I have been around camp fires where planters publicly doubted his actual existence, and claimed he was a planting urban myth."
"His numbers tripled those of the next best planter (who was far from a slouch)."
"the numbers he did back in the shovel screefing days was astounding."
"During the working day he would down jars of honey for quick energy,"
