Freckles, Fishing and Fun

Apr 17, 2012 by

Mulberries - Tasty!I wrote in to Kellene Bishop’s Preparedness Pro blog and shared a little story about the outdoors and my friend James. James was one of the folks that helped me develop into a prepper – he taught me to fish, and he taught me to hunt. And he taught me to value the outdoors and to listen into the silence of a mountaintop, which isn’t silence at all.

    Funny article! You have my vote. All 5 of them. It looks like an interesting contest with a good premise. When I have more time, I’ll go through and read the other entries, but I already voted for yours. I thought it was a funny story with a good moral – be prepared.

    I just wanted to add that James really could have died. You said it wasn’t really an emergency, but it was. If his levels hadn’t gotten under control right away, he could have faced a much more critical emergency and you might not have gotten him out of those woods.

    Sandy, if I’m not mistaken, you were one of the winners for this contest, were you not? Will you give us followup?

    • That’s right! Thanks Jack. Or so I think. It doesn’t look like she’s finished counting the votes yet, but as far as I know I was one of the finalists. I’ll keep you updated. Thanks for noticing! 🙂
