    With fond memories of my Uncle Doug, especially his part, along with my father, in introducing me to the endless wonder and joys to be found in the Great Outdoors.. Experienced first by way of rough, often dusty or muddy backroads on the Eastern Slopes of the Rockies.. hiking and trout fishing the streams and beaver ponds.. the close comraderie around firepit evenings, pan-fried catch, and ‘cowboy’ coffee, whilst ‘roughing it’ out of simple DIY ‘lean-to’ shelter. Rest in Peace, thank you, good Uncle 🙂
