Cold Spots-Warm Heart?

    Stand in the right place and get a sunburn on one side of your body and freeze the other side that didn’t catch the heat from the sun.    There were spots of snow in this high meadow where the sun was blocked from reaching certain areas.    Have you ever had God speak to you throughContinue reading “Cold Spots-Warm Heart?”

One Wild Dream

Ah Yes. Dreams. Ever had a doozie? Well this one was so real I wandered around the house for awhile to see if I was in my dream world or actually awake. So Sit back relax and enjoy this recollection. This is long for a blog but short for a story. Yes I changed theContinue reading “One Wild Dream”

Who needs an Anchor?

Deer I said to my wife as I looked out the window. “Yes” she said (I got out of that one by not saying “I wasn’t talking about you.”) Instead I said “look out the bay window”. The one fawn noticed as I clicked the camera and proceeded to watch until they disappeared into theContinue reading “Who needs an Anchor?”

I’m back and going forward

This will be a common scene on this lake as some of us will be pulling in walleye in 3 weeks at fishing camp in northern Minnesota.There is plenty of room by the way for more guys.

Fishing Camp in Northern Minnesota September 19-25

This spring some of the guys from COFA (Christian Outdoors Fellowship of America) called me and asked if I would put together a five day fishing camp in the fall. I have welts on my wrist from the amount of arm twisting it takes to  get me to go fishing but I said yes. TheseContinue reading “Fishing Camp in Northern Minnesota September 19-25”

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”

Fishing and making fishermen

Yesterday three of us searched for some monster crappies where they should have been but I guess that’s why they call it fishing…No crappies in the shallows because the cold front took them back out again. The little pike were not shy about eating our crappie lures, and there were a few bass not willingContinue reading “Fishing and making fishermen”

Outdoor Adventures insights and stories

After 4 months of writing in another section of the cyber universe, I have moved. I am an outdoor adventure- go before I think-skin my knee on the way out the door-kind of guy (or just accident prone sometimes). I relate to the guy who went to the doctor and said doctor, doctor, I brokeContinue reading “Outdoor Adventures insights and stories”

Food for Thought

>                                Scrambled eggs, coffee after a good Time with God by the fire this morning I heard it….I heard it again…then again….     How I start my day has become important to me. I have had to discipline myself to listen to all the voices vying for the days attention startingContinue reading “Food for Thought”

>Day is Done by Gary Fultz

>                                                                                          Nice photo Hutch!     A beautiful sunset marks the end of a perfect evening on the water. You shiver as the big Timbers start to moan at the end of the tamarack swamp nearby. It’s so still that you can hear your fingers squish a couple of big Minnesota  mosquitoes honing in onContinue reading “>Day is Done by Gary Fultz”
