Smile Just talkin

Years ago when I was stationed at what is now the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, I would take off on a 3-4 day weekend into the mountains as far as my car would go. I'd take a cold supper with me but if I didn't catch a trout the next day, I'd start looking for berries. Usually, though, I wouldn't go hungry. I learned a lot doing that and it served me well over the years of my military career. Zebco makes a little collapsible rod that I carry with me in the car nowadays, it even came with an assortment of lures, sinkers, and bobbers. I used to carry a 10" Bowie knife that was heavy enough to cut down small trees 1-2" to make a lean-to, always thought it would be a pretty good survival weapon as well.
