Happy Holidays

Hey everybody, hope your having a fine holiday season where ever you're at. Just thought I'd share a quote I got from Quote of the Day:

The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season as at another. It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness.
- Henry David Thoreau, 1817 - 1862

    I ran across your blog researching something else.

    Doing any winter camping?

    Good quote and very true. Weather's starting to get a little nicer here in Florida. Time to plan the first camping trip of the year.

    Thoreau was right. No matter where or when I camp, the fire is one of the most calming and relaxing feature of the campground. Great blog by the way. :)

    I agree, the fire keeps us alive and its comforting just to watch the flames. For your next camping trip come visit me and choose from our top 5 knife sheaths. http://bestmilitarysurplus.com/choose-your-knife-sheath-from-our-top-5/

    Fantastic blog! I actually love how it's simple on my eyes as well as the data is well written. I am wondering how I may be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which really should do the trick! Have a nice day!
