    The family and I drove past your place today. I was going to stop, but figured it would be rude to just show up without calling first. My wife really loved the Hope area. Hope all is well.

    Hi Sourdough ... have come across a few of your posts today and thought I'd drop a line here as a new member/visitor. Couldn't help but notice the subtitle under your 'backyard' profile picture as being on the Crescent Lake Trail. That wouldn't be the same Crescent Lake that's just north of Seward is it? I hiked in there some years ago and happened to hit it right, catching some bull grayling on a spinning rod rigged up with a fly (the Leonard fly rod I'd brought all the way from Maine decided to break after about the 3rd cast). Have enjoyed reading some of your posts so far and would love to pick your brain on some local information down the line. Regards ...

Wanting the fantasy & not wanting to hear probable reality

by Sourdough on 09-07-2013 at 12:13 PM
[QUOTE=Sourdough;411695]I have been reading this mans blog for a few years now, and I always get some amount of value from each post. Yes, he would like to sell his books and his trainings, but if you accept that and then set that aside, there is some wisdom available in each post. I am often left with the hollow feeling I get when my fantasy is confronted with probable reality.

Big GRIZZLY BEAR on top of me.

[QUOTE=Sourdough;409775]A Brown Bear Experience.


I was guiding a hunter in Wide Bay, it was the day before the bear season opened, so the hunter and I slept in. I had two 8'X8' "Bombshelter" tents set up facing each other about 6' apart. One was for sleeping and the other for cooking. I told the hunter to stay in his bag till I get the coffee made and the cook tent heated. So I crawl out of the sleep tent on hands and knees, and figure as it is only 6' till I have

[QUOTE=Sourdough;411208]Have you reassessed your reserve food type or inventory allotment in the last 24 months........???

When I turned 65 y/o I assessed my basic theory for the next 15 years. Now nearly two years into the revised plan, I feel good about the new direction. I aspired to list the known natural disasters that had to be considered; Forest Fire & total loss of everything above ground, Being down wind of a Volcanic Eruption resulting in up to a few feet of volcanic

Wilderness can Change a Man........

by Sourdough on 01-30-2011 at 08:05 PM
The wilderness can change a man............
There is a real transformation that can metamorphose within a man who is alone in the wilderness. He can exit the wilderness fragile, very fragile, he is no longer sure where that which is himself ends and that which is not himself starts.

Everything is kind of fuzzy, and has a softness about it, all things appear slightly blurred to the eye, like after one has been crying, and it can be hard to distinguish where one object stops
