I got a few of those stories.
One thing I have instilled in my kids is that you can still have that kind of fun in today's world. Can't tell you how many times me and/or the boys have struck out with nothing other than a small pack.
We hiked in 1-1/2 miles this year for the last weekend of deer in Bald Eagle. Three day only what we had on our backs.
I walked into the Tionesta area a few times back in the early '80s with nothing but a fishing rod, tin foil, butter and a little camping stuff for a few days eating trout, ramps and a few early season mushrooms.
Slept under a canoe for three nights coming down from East Branch Dam to Hallton. Didn't take a tent, with my newly wedded wife.
My boys have hit deserted Caribbean beaches with just a hammock and fishing rod for the weekend.
I know the good old days are gone, but if you try hard enough you can be happy being wet, cold and hungry right now.
as waylon would say,
dont go taking me seriously
cause i poked at you in fun
