I've been doing this for quite some time now.
Traveling between two time periods that is... not blogging. The blogging part is actually quite new to me.
I suppose all things being equal, I have been going back and forth between this present year and 1780 for about six or seven years. I started off as the 'schoolmaster' because I had no other viable 18th century skills... I couldn't 'carpenter' or 'blacksmith'... I couldn't hunt or fish... I wasn't much of a soldier... and given my 21st century occupation, schoolmaster seemed like a natural fit.
SO I began my 18th Century occupation as 'schoolmaster'. The problem I discovered after a time was that I became the de-facto fort babysitter... not good. Once the shine began to fade from that job, I began to 'apprentice' with the fort doctor (Thomas Walker). After a few short weeks at this, I was thrust into the doctor position when Doctor Walker was whisked away to the World War II era!
Now as the fort physician, I have my own cabin and a real position of prominence!
