Picture the iconic author. Is he tall? Does she command the room when she speaks? Do they have a drinking problem? Tell me, do you see a mustache? Perhaps you’re seeing Hemingway… When I see the iconic author, I see someone who has a special, sometimes strange, look in their eye. Why? Because they see the world differently than most. I also see someone who watches the world live around them, rather than being the one who does the living. I see a powerful artist, someone who can arrange words to create power. I see someone who is unique. Someone who commands the room.
As a first time exclusive, today I will be reviewing a beautiful watch from the fine folks over at Shore Projects in the UK. While I’ve never reviewed a watch on the blog, I have indeed been a watch owner for much of my life, and I know what I like and what to look for. Let’s take some time to talk about the Lulworth style watch…
If you’re trekking the wilderness with family and friends, who like to venture off on their own, it’s very important to maintain contact at all times. When I travel with my family and friends, especially out in great wildernesses, I will always split a pair of radios between groups; even if we’re staying relatively close together. There’s no easier way to ruin a trip than to lose track of a person’s whereabouts. Traveling prepared with a radio set can make all the difference for fun and safety. Even on road trips with multiple cars, you can have a lot of fun with two-way radios, and even discuss what you’re seeing, make upcoming plans and food stops, and even pass the time by playing games between vehicles.
A good friend of mine is visiting Norway this week and upon preparing, he asked for my advice on a cold weather blanket, as it is still winter there and he will be in the north of the country. So, I thought it might be prudent to offer a few words on the subject here as well.
If you’re like me, when you venture out into any wooded wilderness, you are conscientious and empathetic about the footprint you leave behind. I realize that it’s a natural cycle for the earth to burn from wildfires, as it gives the ground a chance to start anew, but I would feel like bloody awful if I were responsible for a forest fire getting out of hand. Because if you think about it, even if a wildfire is natural, it has devastating effects on the surrounding life. Anytime a forest suffers deforestation, the birds circle the area over and over, crying over lost ones, and the same goes for owls and mammals. I’ve witnessed the devastation first hand, and have seen how animals are torn from their homes, and family, and I’ve heard their cries.
A solid pair of sunglasses can save your sight and improve the way the world around you affects your mood. I don’t know about you, but having spent the last few winters in Ohio and Colorado, I’ve come to dread the grey dullness that the season can bring. Most of the trees are bare and skeletal, and the sky’s grey, which seems to bring on the itching in my feet, the desire to escape and a general sense of depression
