In my earliest yoot I spent all of my free time in the wood exploring the forest, stream and unterrock worlds. I was especially fond of salamanders along with all the other amphibians; and we were blessed with a nice variety of salamanders, frogs and toads in my just-built street on the outskirts of suburbia. Good, good times, even though I was alone, the exploration was enough.
