The City Of Love…Paris

Posted by on Mar 19, 2014 in Europe, France, Places to Trek, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Paris is a place that initially gives you a rush of euphoria with her beauty and the excitement she has to offer. Food, wine, architecture and culture contribute to making her the most romantic city in the world. It is a city where the greats once roamed. Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, Picasso, Dali, etc. wondered drunkenly about the city, ages ago, and laid the road for dreamers alike to follow. It is a place for lovers where, at any historical landmark, couples can be seen locking faces and staring into each other with smiling eyes. Every night the Eiffel tower lights up the city for the first ten minutes of every hour. It stands as a beacon of hope for desperate boys wishing for a kiss from a pretty girl. For some of these starry-eyed lovers, Paris...

No Hablo Irish!

You can spot them from a mile away. They move slowly, unless they are crossing the street, then they sprint. They wear the uniform of their kind consisting of necklace passport holders, wool Irish caps, and bright colored fanny-packs. They panic at rotating doors and constantly overuse “thank you” and “sorry.” They are the American tourist. They are best spotted on any average day, in the city center of Dublin, wondering around lost. You can see in their faces the hopes and dreams of leprechauns, wool sweaters, bagpipes, and rickety old pubs slowly being torn apart by the modernity and harshness that is Dublin. Although they come out in large numbers, the American tourists are not the only, lost and oblivious, tourist country wondering around the streets of Dublin. The Chinese tourists seem to live their whole trip behind...

“There’s so many stars up there.” “What?” I opened my eyes and watched the stars spin before my eyes and then come to a stop. The whiskey was still fresh on my breath.”Yea, its been a while since I’ve seen that many stars”Above me, dressed in blue pants, a checkered shirt, a long beard, and old eyes gazing at the sky, stood a Union Civil War soldier. “Mind if I sit down beside you here.” “Sure, I was about to go to sleep, but I’m awake now.” He hit the ground, like a ton of bricks, and sprawled out on the grass next to the fire. I could tell right away he was hammered off his ass. “I used to live in the mountains.” “Oh? Did you now” “Yea back in the sixties. A bunch of us moved into...

The Full Process

Posted by on Dec 28, 2012 in Go West U.S., Montana, Places to Trek | 0 comments

When you turn on a hunting television show you see the the hunt, the kill, the hunter standing over their kill, and the end. But, as every hunter knows, there is a lot more that takes place than just these few steps. What about the trek into the mountains? Watching the last convulsions of the animal before it dies? The pack-out of the 500 pound creature? Or skinning and the processing of the meat? Adding it all up, these television shows only show a small percentage of what hunting actually is. As a hunter, I am supportive of hunting if it is done the right way. If you kill it, you eat it. The poachers, the road hunters, and these television shows poorly represent actual hunters and give them a bad name. The great television hunters would have the...
