I have spent a lot of time in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota with friends and family. I have made over 25 trips to this area and will continue to do so for as long as I am able. I am reaching out to as many people as I can toContinue reading “A Call For Help…”
The wife and I decided to take a walk this morning along the Arkansas River Trail. I took the Canon T7 along just to play with and get some field experience taking pictures. We saw 3 Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) which was neat. I definitely need to get a telephoto lens and a macro lensContinue reading “Morning Walk Turns into Scavenger Hunt…”
Some of you may know that my wife drives a Subaru Forester, the green one we drive on most of our excursions. Hers has Method MR502 Rally rims with Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail tires which make it more suitable for driving to the places we like to go. I also drive a Subaru Forester thatContinue reading “Went For A Drive Today (9OCT2021)…”
Full admission on my part-I am not a photographer! But I have been tempted for a couple of years to move up to a full fledged DSLR camera. GoPro’s have their niche as do cell phones…but I wanted to take it to the next level. I opted for this camera since I am a beginnerContinue reading “Bought a Canon EOS Rebel T7 Camera…”

The Preserve itself consists of 39,650 acres on which 2500 Bison are free to roam. At one time, the Tallgrass Prairie spanned 14 states from Texas to Minnesota, but nowContinue reading “A Visit to the Joseph H. Williams Tallgrass Prairie Preserve in Oklahoma…”
Boreas- the Greek God of the North Wind Monday was another hot day with temperatures peaking at 97F. Most of the local residents that I speak with are tired of summer. It has dragged on too long for their liking, and mine. Oklahoma weather is fickle and such is the case this year. However, theContinue reading “Boreas Paid a Visit…”
The Marttiini M571 knife had somewhat of a cult following while it was in production. Its direct competitor was the Mora 510 or even the Mora #1/#2. The prices were similar of around $10 USD. Ergonomically the M571 won hands down, even though the blade was just a little over 3 inches long. Amazingly, theContinue reading “The Marttiini M571 knife…”
Almost every summer we make a refreshing drink from the Sumac shrub. We have these growing on our property in healthy patches so we use them for their medicinal purposes. I like to experiment with wild edibles and medicinals and according to common sense recommendations I always perform a test by rubbing some on myContinue reading “Sumac-Ade…”
When I was around 12 years old, my family had a trip to Colorado planned. I knew nothing about Colorado except that it was a long drive to get there. At the time I was a voracious reader of history, Native American culture and skills and various other things. I was never really interested inContinue reading “The Book That Started It All…”
