Lunch came from the homestead, trees were planted, soil tended, weeds pulled, plants watered. I love these spring days.
What a productive, busy homesteading day I had. Life out here in the wild is busy and rewarding this late April day.

Why do you hunt? It's a question I'm asked from time to time. The list is long but it's worth reading.

What are high tunnels? Fresh greens in January in Maine - life is good. Or ripe tomatoes in the tunnel a few weeks after transplanting eight week old seedlings in the regular garden. You can grow a lot of food in a small space with a high tunnel.
What are high tunnels and how do you use them? Find out here what we do with them in the wild.

What great birds! I've never seen a Kookaburra and cockatoos only in a zoo. Your beech photos make me want to be there taking in the sand, warmth and waves. I'm not so sure about the kiteboarding. I think I'm probably better with my feet on the ground. ;)

This is what we'll have for supper tonight. It's a damp, chilly spring day. Meatloaf, baked potatoes and the warmth for the oven are exactly what we need today!
Moose Meatloaf! This recipe works as well with deer, elk, other wild game and beef.

I was nervous about my first white water rafting trip. Jessie Herling, co-manager along with her husband Tom, visited with me the night before and helped put my mind at ease. I had such a great time on the river that I returned the following week to raft again. US Rafting is excellent! I'm hooked and looking forward to my next trip with them this summer.
