Best thing you can do for your boat: Use it

It puzzles me sometimes how something can break without even being used. Because of a busy schedule, I was unable to get my boat out for a few months. When I had last used it, everything was working perfectly.

Youth football could lose the numbers game

The deaths of 19 football players in a single season precipitated a national crisis in 1905, an event Doris Kearns Goodwin touches on in a new biography of president Teddy Roosevelt. There were 28 reported deaths some seven decades later, when James Michener created a stir with "Sports in America."

Outdoor gift ideas

While I miss old the fashioned Christmas where the emphasis was on the birth of Christ and the gifts symbolic of those brought by the Magi, it is obvious that the season has evolved into a gift buying frenzy that starts earlier each year. I know that I cannot change the trend all by myself, but at the very least we can concentrate on giving gifts that are selected to match the recipient.

Thoughts on Thanksgiving

Although we often think of Thanksgiving as an American holiday, it is actually celebrated in many nations. We Christians believe that we have a benevolent God to whom we should give thanks and every other religion is free to give thanks to whatever god they choose to believe in. In addition Thanksgiving emphasizes the extent to which we are still dependent upon nature for our very survival, and secondly, the extent to which Thanksgiving has been a family oriented holiday.

Thinking of veterans & the outdoors

I recall as a youngster celebrating Armistice Day and that somewhere along the way it changed into Veterans Day. Since Armistice Day was intended to comemorate the end of World War I, I think it's much more fitting that we honor all of our country's vets instead. Interestingly our nations returning vets have had a huge effect on our outdoor heritage as well. Returning vets often went hunting and put food on the table for their families with the firearms they used in the war.

The handiest gun revisited

In my book, guns are neither good nor evil; they are simply inanimate tools that do what their owners use them to do. Over a lifetime outdoors I have come across numerous situations in which a gun has been extremely handy. I have killed coiled rattlers that were about to strike, and chased away bears that were raiding our icebox. A gun can indeed save a life.
