I enjoy being outside, learning skills, and practicing skills.
I used to read Backpacker and I used to do survival style and solo trips several times a year.
If there was ever and extreme weather (which seldom happens on the Upper Cumberland Plateau) I'd grab my pack and go. As the years went by I become more and more about old woodcraft skills and tools... essentially history. Like Nessmuk, Kephart, and the like.

I do the same, DSL. I might buy their diy compliation.
But today I had some reward points to spend at a store... Field & Stream had a new one and so did TBWM... $13 versus $5.5... I got TBWM and some choclates for family.

I used to read those along with "fish fur and game". They've kinda disappeared off the shelves around here. I need to break down and subscribe. Thanks for the reminder Pat.
If you read FFG you may have read some of my articles there as well. But I hate to say it but FFG is a shadow of what it once was. The fur trade is down, maybe for good and that was a lot of that magazines content. I read it every month and it has become quite thin.

Thanks a bunch, Ghost... I have been outta sorts this week. Getting back into my discussions now that I am caught (mostly) up and coherent (ish).

I will try to look those up... After I learn ror record the articles I like or find useful I pass my copies to my dad, who is famously unorganized... a legend among packrats. So I may just backorder...
