This is what hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people who own property in the New York Catskill mountain area were told in 2011. Local residents as well as state police turned legal property owners away from access to their land in the fall of that year. But allow me to digress for a moment before the […]

I’ve done a lot of camping this summer, and with the drought, you can imagine it was pretty hot out there.  I can attest that it was.  At our camp site we cut a lot of wood, and we used much of it for the camp fire.  Those were hot days swinging an axe, and […]

Living in NJ is an experience unto itself.  Just ask any of my friends who live here that are transplants like me.  It is certainly one of the most unique places I have ever been.  People here just want to get from point A to point B when they are in the car.  You would […]

A question on one of the boards I am on popped up, and I responded, which I rarely do these days.  I’ve been kind of burned out of writing and been focusing on building more preps, losing some of my flab and getting into better shape, etc….  However, I thought this was in interesting question. […]
