Just finished Jim Bridger, and a man to match the mountains. Both good books, anyone else have any they like? Not much for TV anymore, news is terrible lately, a fire and a beer in between projects is where i have been lately.

Trap lines north, and 50 years hunter and trapper. Both online for free.


When you earnestly believe you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, there's no end to what you can't do.

"The Long Walk" by Rawicz. Factual account of a captured Polish soldier at the start of WW2 sent to a Siberian work center (Gulag). Escaped (mid winter) and walked south. Fascinating read.
