Not leaving Alabama Rig without bite

Two states, same river, one day

One of the advantages of being unattached is the opportunity to set my own schedule. A side-effect is that I don't always plan really well, so Friday morning when I woke up and decided to go fishing, I ended up going north on highway 99 unsure of where I'd end up.

Easter’s reminder: It’s rattlesnake season

Part of the beauty of being an outdoor enthusiast is observing and participating in the eternal cycles of nature. Recently I attended Easter Sunday church services with my son, son-in-law, daughter and grandkids. As I observed my grandkids participating in the celebration of The Risen Christ, it struck me that a generation ago it had been my children who were participating as small children and that a generation before that it had been me and my brother and sister learning the eternal story. In another generation it will be my great-grandkids learning about the conquest of death.

Critters from Down Under

A couple of weeks ago, I somehow managed to find myself in Australia. As an incurable outdoors enthusiast, I wanted to get a taste of outdoor experiences Down Under. Australia is such a huge and diverse country, it is impossible to see it all in a short time.
