First off, Happy New Year!

I spent some time over the holidays thinking about what I wanted to accomplish in 2014 and re-starting this blog ranked high on the list. (Getting back to my hunting and fishing trips as well as time at the range too…)

I will try to make it a point to get at least one article a week posted up here if I can.

Life is still offering up plenty of distraction but making the writing a priority should help me maintain a bit more focus than in the past couple of seasons.

I have some new ideas, some old ideas, and would like to actually revisit some past locations/projects/tools just to give you an update.

After losing 75 pounds (yeah, crazy right?) my perspective has definitely changed in some areas.  :)

My head has definitely been stuck in the sand for the most part in the past 24 months or so but I'll get back up to speed on what the boys at JRE Industries are doing and what new developments Mike at Grindstone Cutlery has come up with since he's always tinkering with the way things are done and tweaking materials, construction, and processes to improve what he's doing.

I'm going to go back to the meat and potatoes of the blog--the hiking and photography.

Just not today…it's COLD out there and none of my warm clothing fits any more. :)

See you around soon.

Thanks for reading,
