I love the outdoors.  Camping, fishing, hunting, hiking, canoe tripping.  I do all of those to greater or lesser degrees.  Most of the time I can’t be outside doing those things I enjoy.  You see, I have to work and make money that I get to then squander on things like bills; mortgage, food, heat…etc…  So I don’t get out as much as I would like.  But when I can’t get outside I turn to YouTube to get myself a partial outdoor fix.

In fact because I watch so much YouTube these days I joined Premium and no longer have to watch ads.

When I watch outdoor themed YouTubers I relax.  It settles my restless soul.  Sure, it’s not nearly as good as getting out there in the forest or on a lake for myself.  But hey, it’s better than nothing.  In fact it’s way better than nothing.  I find myself immensely entertained by several YouTubers, and not only that, I also find a lot of inspiration from them.

Somers Lake Recreation Area – A Day In The Woods

This past Sunday I woke up at home and realized I didn’t have anything to occupy my day.  My wife was out of town, our pet dog was with her, and I had nothing I needed to take care of that was pressing.  So I quickly grabbed my medium Alice Pack that I keep some basic kit in, my Marlin Model 60 .22, and jumped into my Ford Escape.  My mind was on the Somers Lake Recreation Area located in Polk County Wisconsin.

Years ago my parents owned a lake home on the east side of Somers Lake.  I would spend time at the large forested area on the west side, which is the Somers Lake Rec Area.

It had been four for five years since I had last been there, and I was wanting to see it again.  My drive there took about ninety minutes.  The forecast for the day mentioned a mostly cloudy morning with sun by midday and a high in the upper 60s. CONTINUE READING, CLICK HERE
