Our family has been outdoors people most all of my life.

Many of our vacations were camping, hunting, and fishing.

It may be hard for some of you to imagine, but my Mom can be an outdoors lady.

She always caught the most fish and she would always get a good Buck.

One thing we loved as boy’s, and that was building a camp fire.

There were many times we would sleep outside by the fire, and Mom and Dad would sleep in the camper or whatever we took to stay in.

Dad would find us a big stump with the heart in it because that would burn all night long and we would still have fire the next day.

He would get up and work the fire so that the flame would not go out.
