Despite the fact that the new Dallara IndyCar chassis looks somewhat strange – sort of like the bat mobile from the rear – the car is getting a thumbs up from both drivers and fans alike.
Though I started in early December, I feel completely confident and absolutely justified in thinking seriously about summer after this past week of fantastic weather.
Got an email from one of my readers the other day who told me how much he was enjoying my book, "Tight Lines, Observations of an Outdoor Philosopher".
Several years ago when the swim bait started to become real popular, I wrote about the baits becoming better than the anglers. As technology has far surpassed what I could ever imagine, I've been amazed at how it's changed the way anglers have fished. It seems like every year there's a new bait, technique, or piece of equipment that makes me wonder if catching more or bigger fish is now determined by who has the better equipment, instead of who's the better angler.
Russell Chatham wrote, "Fishing at its most rudimentary level is essentially solitary. Not only that, but its components, outside the particular baggage one brings to it, are entirely trustworthy. I mean, what creek ever teased you about your pimples; what breeze ever ridiculed you in front of your friends?"
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The hugs with his family took place on the clubhouse lawn, not the 18th green. That was occupied, and by this time there was nothing Phil Mickelson could do about it.
The older I get, the faster that time seems to fly. It seems like only yesterday that I was chasing my first bear in the woods near Hoopa. It's hard to believe that it's now been over 35 years ago. Last fall my son Donald and I were once again out in the woods running after bears. Without a doubt the best way to catch a bear is to use trained hounds. While it may sound like it's a simple matter to just shoot a bear once the hounds have treed him, nothing could be farther from ...
Some time ago I decided that one fishing pole wasn't enough. Before long I had more fishing poles than I could possibly keep track of.
Following a one-week delay due to the weather, the New Stockton 99 Speedway is set to kick off its 2012 season this Saturday night with the Spears Manufacturing 125 for the SRL Late Model Southwest Tour Series.
At about 2 on Sunday afternoon I was writing the 'skunked' column in my frantic, frazzled head.
It's wildflower time once again. A couple of days ago I was driving through the countryside, when I was struck by the absolute beauty of the wild Lupine flowers that are in bloom now.
Last week, I was able to get out fishing. It's been a while since I've been out.
The World of Outlaw (WoO) Sprints will be returning to the Merced Speedway at The Merced Fairgrounds this Friday night. The national Sprint Car series made its inaugural visit last April in front of a packed house.
Before I could even sit in the driver's seat Sunday morning, I was astounded at the smell permeating from my truck. It didn't reek, but the unique odors mixed with such harmony I couldn't help admire it.
Philosophically, I knew from an early age that gold was sometimes found in trout streams. Practically however, there is a real difference from "book learnin" and actually discovering something yourself. I think the difference was something Socrates discovered about 400 years B.C. If you figure it out yourself you will really learn something.
A friend of mine recently purchased a used boat for the first time.
