Would camouflage clothing and mosquito netting be part of your gear?

I'm an outdoor enthusiast myself but at times I become bored & hungry after a few hrs.


This is half the problem with today's society. We have forgotten how to live without the comforts of home. How in the world can you get bored in the great outdoors??? :confused:

I was at a pond this morning before 6 am. It was so cold out the water was freezing in the guides of my rod and I had to stop periodically and use a hook to clean them out so I could cast. Caught more then enough fish to sustain me had I needed to eat them, but the wife packed some beef jerky for me so I was all good. In the 4.5 hours I was out there I saw more turkey then I can count, 4 ducks, 2 geese, a beaver that was none to happy that I was fishing on his pond, and 1 very large bull elk. Closest I have seen an elk to home now, so they are certainly expanding their range. Of course, I was packing, so I could have had more then enough to eat if need be.

I would still be out there right now if my son didn't have a baseball game. Afterwards maybe I will round up the kids and go out for some bluegill or channel cats.

Dang it, your making me jealous!!! All I got to do was drive 45 min. to a sportsmans center that specializes in Matthews bows to get some rubber string stops. I did drive through the kind of country I would like to live in however. Right up against the Smokey Mountains, all state and federal wildlands to the north. Unbelievable prices on ammo and such. $18 for 50 rounds of high velocity Win .22 ammo!! :shock: I paid $37 for 1000 primers the other day and was furious about the price....it was $50 for the same box!!!!! :shock: Primers have been .02 each for years and I remember paying .01 for them. Didnt even think about buying ammo, I have enough for now. Not practicing though.

You would like to live in? Make it happen! We don't live forever, might as well live happy with the time we are given! I am going to take the video camera next time. When I was at the beaver pond last fall 2 huge white tail bucks came out of the woods and drank at the pond. Some of the largest bucks I have seen!

Back to some fishing...

Bored was the wrong word. I spend more time exploring the surrounding mountains, streams and places of historic interest than anyone I know. But I don't do it to get away from people. I do it out of curiosity & to learn. Haven't you seen any of my photos? Did you know I motorcycled to St Anthony, NL? Now that's way out there. I stood on Leaf's Erikson's initial camp.

I take exploring style camping trips every year. But I have do have to deal with a medical issue which prevents me from certain things thus reason why I said I'd get hungry.

Cool. I absolutely do it to get away from people. The only humans I want in tow are the wife and kids, outside of that, I try to get as far away from civilization as I can. Even then you cant completely escape it. Nothing worse then finding empty beer bottles at my fishing hole. Makes me want to hide out in the weeds and find the a**hole that did it and make him pick them up with his a$$ cheeks.

I spend a lot of my time picking up fishing line and hauling it out of the water. Sadly, most don't know how to fish weeds so they show up with light tackle and leave a hell of a mess all over the place then leave. I guess the good news is they don't come back!

I have 2 bikes. The wife and I talk about getting away with sleeping bags and the fishing poles once the kids are grown, but I will do it far away from the sites that most want to see. No interest in the National Parks and monuments that are PACKED with people. We want to find as many secret fishing holes as we can from here to CA!
