Thanksgiving has come and gone. As usual the four day weekend flew by.
In a world where everything is based on bigger, faster, better, more, right now – remembering to spend time with a loved one can be hard.
The inspiration for this blog came to me this morning as I was putting the house hold recycling containers out to the road side for the bi-weekly collection truck. We all hear the message of “Do your part to preserve the environment for the future”. Well this lesson seems to be strong in the youth of today, but seems to slip past the more mature. Nothing is sadder to see, than a group on a passing boat throwing garbage overboard, or packages and wrappers from empty bait containers scattered along a great shore fishing bank.

Fall is my favorite season; it’s all about hunting, my birthday, great fishing and Halloween. Winter, which comes in at a very close second, is ice fishing, sturgeon spearing and winter cabins. Spring is third and is all about turkey time and spawning time.
While summer is technically my least favorite, this season tends to generate some of the best memories. To me summer is all about fishing and camping. Campfires, smores, lakes, brats, relaxing, rivers, visiting etc.
We have truly grown to love our tent. For the last few years we’d thought about buying a camper but to be honest with you, since I am only comfortable pulling one or the other behind my truck; we’ve decided a fishing boat is the way to go. We’d be happier tent camping in one of the amazing parks here in Wisconsin and trailering the boat behind in hopes of finding that perfect fishing lake or that perfect sunbathing sandbar.
You don’t always have to travel far away to enjoy time with the family outdoors.
For us this Memorial Day weekend we chose to go camping at Kohler-Andrae State Park, it’s only an hour away and provides us with a plethora of outdoor activities.
We do a lot with my first cousin and her family, I am grateful to have family that enjoys the outdoors as much as I do. Zach and I both love their kids and we always have a lot of fun camping with them.
Comprised of 125 campsites, we made our reservations about 2 months prior.
