Fishing is always good

Sometimes the catching is good as well.  I am happy to represent truth in this statement. I have a natural bent for life on the water and in the woods. The more remote the better. Maybe parts of our DNA bent are like-minded you and I. Maybe not! Maybe you think my DNA is aContinue reading “Fishing is always good”

Wilderness Food Planning for the unorganized (like I should talk)

I was in the grocery store for a couple hours (seemed like) with a cart load of camping food and my cart disappeared. It was just gone. I found it two isles over being pushed by a very small elderly women with a friend pushing a similar cart. They were shopping together. When I askedContinue reading “Wilderness Food Planning for the unorganized (like I should talk)”

Glimpse of a BWCAW Adventure

                    2014 Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Trip #59 for me. All seems well with the wilderness world on mornings like this.

One can onlyContinue reading “Glimpse of a BWCAW Adventure”

In the wilderness there are no signs to tell of dangerous rapids, impassable waterways, or floating bog areas.  There are no signs to tell you it’s a dead-end after two miles of heavyContinue reading “Dare to Adventure”

Wild Outdoor Adventures and Serious Fun

Nine of us embarked on a Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness Trip a few days ago. Nine of us (thankfully) came back out a few days later. High winds, swamped canoes, physical ability questions and extremely rugged territory redefined our plans. It’s one thing to look at a map and plan your adventure; quite anotherContinue reading “Wild Outdoor Adventures and Serious Fun”

>A Case for…Outdoor Adventures By Gary Fultz

>                                     46″ pike… Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness     I’m a thrill seeker in the outdoor arena. Adventure stirs and wakens brain cells my teachers thought were missing. It’s not enough for me to to read adventure stories and fantasize surviving the “call of the wild” lifestyle; I want to live it and tellContinue reading “>A Case for…Outdoor Adventures By Gary Fultz”
