Buying Land In Wisconsin

Buying Land In Wisconsin

Been a while since I posted anything. Covid, work, family, and spending as much time outside has left little time for messing around in the mancave in the computer. I also have been studying to take the FAA Part 107 Unmanned Aerial System test – which I recently did take and pass.

YouTube & Patreon

YouTube & Patreon

I have been thinking about getting more serious about putting content on YouTube the past couple months.  After going back and forth weighing the pros and cons I decided to move ahead with the intent to start adding what I hope will be quality content to YouTube.

Coinciding with my future YouTube content I am also starting a Patreon Page!  My hope with Patreon is to earn some cash to help pay for some of the future trips I would like to go on.  How awesome would it be to make a nice side income doing something you love?  Well, that’s my plan…  a dream I have.

A Word About Ads On My Website

A Word About Ads On My Website

Recently I activated Google Adsense Ads for my website.

I used to generate some side income through Affiliate Marketing on this website, but over the past couple months the online businesses I had been affiliating with lowered their sales commission rates.  It is what it is… Not a big deal, but I sure have noticed a lower average income from my website marketing methods.

I Used To Be A Prepper

I Used To Be A Prepper

About fifteen years ago I was a prepper.  I was never hardcore about it.  At the most I stocked up about two months of food in my pantry, extra first aid supplies, extra hygiene items, and of course specific equipment to hunt, trap, fish, water filtration… you get the idea.

A Little Update

A Little Update

I was in my garage yesterday afternoon thinking about how it needed to be cleaned out.  While making preparations to get reorganized my eyes kept wandering towards my Old Town Guide 119 as it sat on its gunnels in storage.  Spring isn’t too far off and thoughts of a quiet paddle on a cold spring morning started to fill my mind.

Could be an earlier Spring than expected.  This coming weekend, March 7th and 8th, the weather forecast for my area of NW Wisconsin is being forecast for the upper 50s and low 60s!

I Don’t Want To Make Videos Of My Outings!

I am being asked once again by certain members of my family to take along an action camera and record my outings.  In particular my canoe trips.  Last spring on my first solo Boundary Waters Canoe Trip in more than ten years I did bring a small action camera with me – and was miserably annoyed by the entire process.  To be honest it was not at all fun.  Trying to record video is, in my opinion, tedious.

Setting up the camera, aligning it just right for a certain shot.  Worrying about sound, light, wind, if I’m in frame… it took a tole on me in a single day.  By day 2 of my trip I hardly touched that action camera.  Instead I took pictures with my phone’s camera.

A Slow Start To The New Year

A Slow Start To The New Year

Sorry I have not been posting much the past month or more.  The Holiday Season can be a busy time, and it has now finally come to an end for me and my wife.  We had our last party that we had to attend this past Saturday on the 5th.  Now things will start to settle back down.
