    I have several sets of the red and black wool, new and old. Depending on the temperature and where I’m hunting, I wear them. I don’t like going in the swamp with them too much, too much walking and they get heavy.

    This year I’ll be traveling some of the time in a willys truck. It belonged to a oldtimer I was pals with. A ton of good memories in that rig. Hoping I get a good one to put in the back or over a fender.

    This my new old school deer camp. We have stayed 5 nights in it so far and really like it. The stove does a great job and has tons of room. It is on private, not too worried about idiots, but it would not be out of the realm of possibility to have a meth head squatter that would need evicting.

    I wore these pants that were my Great Grandfathers for several seasons when I started gun hunting. I liked them but for some reason they shrunk and no longer fit me. My Dad had the jacket for a while but can no longer find it. The pants sure were warm. red and black 2.jpg red and black.jpg

    I'm 9 days from heading to the Yoop, and I already can't sleep. Wife senses my restlessness. Work this weekend, off next Wed for Veterans Day, work Thursday then heading up.
