The Outdoor Toddler Agenda and Toddler Fishing 5.0
My wife informed me on friday night that she needed some time on Saturday to do some "stuff."  I usually interpret "stuff" to mean things she doesn't want to hear me complain about being involved in all day.   For the last 4.5 years, I've also learned to in...

Late Winter Ebb
The aluminum eyelets on my Danners ice up again, pulling the thick laces back and forth across them as I trudge through the half frozen floodplain. They splay, half wet half frozen.  Another day of snow followed by four days of snow melt followed by another...

The Blank Space
This winter seems interminable - they say it's the coldest in 20 years.  Everyone in our family has caught the same cold twice in the last four weeks.  No perennials are peeking up through the scattered snow banks that have long overstayed their welcome.   ...

Introduction
Thanks for checking out my profile!  I live and breathe the outdoors, and I hope it shows in my rants, tall tales, and indulgent photography.  I work as a habitat restoration project manager and a part-time college professor, currently teaching Environmental Science.   I've lived all my life in the American Mid-Atlantic and I seek both adventure and peace on its rivers, forests, and marshes.  I share it all with my wife Amy and son Hank.
