As the cooler weather descends upon us, the time at the lake is dwindling down to a halt. I would love to get a few more good outings this fall with fishing and just enjoying being on the water as opposed go going in. Of course there was a great end of the season sale on the Yamaha RS300 - so I snagged one and it just showed up yesterday. I mean... How cool does that look? Good for 100 feet and 3 mph. I haven't actually used it yet so don't rush out and buy one just yet, but figured worst case it would be something fun for the kids to use and play with around the boat and…

We officially received our patches for finishing the Belknap Range this year. Lots of great hikes that spanned the course of 3 years to finish and get our patches. We are looking to the Ossipee range for next year and eventually the White Mountains. Patches with a nice note If you want to join in with some hikes and receive your patches, there is a full list of those hikes here: http://4000footers.com/lists.shtml Foggy view on Mount Major Some days the view is the destination, other days the hike is the adventure. Just get outdoors. It is worth it.

I honestly have not been in years... I once upon a time had my yearly range membership and was shooting 100 rounds ever Saturday and reloading my own ammo, to not going in over 5 years. So when my neighbor asked me if I wanted to go to the range, I jumped at the chance to go back. It was amazing how little changed there - but how much it was still perfect. We shot a couple boxes of ammo each. I brought my XDS 45 and he brought his 9mm he wanted to practice shooting. Shooting Range I'll be honest, I've never embeded a video on this site before, so let's see if this works! And no video. I…

The horse shoe pits that I put together some time ago, have been a big hit in the neighborhood on Thursday nights. I can't say any of us are that good or even keep track of scores, but it has been a great excuse to get together and enjoy each other's company in this time when most people are stuck at home. As the summer is winding down, darkness is descending earlier. So we find ourselves on my deck earlier and earlier. The prior week we decided to forgo the entire horse show throwing charade and just met up at the deck for drinks and food! And of course Cigars!!! It isn't the horse shoes. So don't feel the need…

Flat out this has become one of my favorite cigars! Hoyo De Monterrey Excaliburs have a special place in my heart already due to it being the first cigar I ever smoked (beyond those swisher sweets) and the first cigar when I realized how HORRIBLE those Swisher Sweets actually were... I never turned back to have a bad cigar ever again. These "Forge" cigars are at another level. Dark, velvety, and a hint of chocolate round out this cigar. Excalibur Forge Filler The filler is a mix of tobacco from both Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The binder is Connecticut Habano The wrapper from Honduras. You truly are travelling the world while smoking this cigar. wrapper and cap Large band…

Posting some photos from around the lake this past weekend. Not much to really write about - no adventures per se while out on the water, but definitely enjoying all that life has to offer right now. Cat at the helm getting ready for her first excursion without me to help Favorite hanging out spot I'm avoiding the sun while the wife is trying to get some Rattlesnake and Diamond Island Alton Bay Enjoying a swim and getting ready for sunset Sunset on the lake Full Moon up in the sky while the sun sets opposite direction
