Day Outing...Dirt Time Finally!
« on: December 12, 2015, 05:43:01 PM »
My plant manager told me I didn't have to work today (Saturday). First Saturday in months that didn't involve work, hospital visits, or funerals. I surprised Nature Girl with a day trip to one of our ole stomping grounds Panther Creek. We haven't been there in 2+ years.

The start of the 'journey'.



Just me, a little rough around the edges...



Burl?



Some of the local scenery...

Made lunch for us using my Stanley cook kit, and the small kettle Jontok gifted me last year, with magic heat and sterno stoves...





Thanks for looking and God bless....

That's how to spend a day off work my friend!  Great area to get out and breathe in.  That's cool your wife likes to go out too.

Thanks for the kind words. Nature Girl (Betty) loves the outdoors and camping. Most of the time when I get a piece of gear I have to buy 2, 1 for me and one for her, or it's 'that's nice...where's mine?' lol.  Thanks to the meal I made for her today, she wants a Stanley set of her own lol.

Great outing and it sounds like it was well deserved.
