A course walk with Ms. Tryon was always intimidating. She’d wave her hand at some enormous pile of wood and say, “Oh, just kick over this.”
I interviewed her three times: on fireproofing barns [The Horse], winter exercises [Eventing USA], and time management [Eventing USA]. That ties her with Michael Poulin for the person I have written about most often. She was always well-spoken, thoughtful, informative, and gracious about making time for an an interview.
Amy Tryon is the reason I am a firefighter.
