The Book I Remember Reading as a Child

hatchet.jpgWhenever I think back to growing up, the book that comes to mind is Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. I don’t really remember much about the story, other than the kid was stuck out in the woods by himself and survived because he had a hatchet.

I always thought the survival aspect of the story was so cool. I think that is part of why I enjoy movies, stories, and shows with similar aspects, like Alaskan Bush People or Alaska: The Last Frontier. Sure, these shows are produced and played up a bit, but you still get to see people out in remote areas surviving on a lot less than we have here.

I’ll bet it has also shaped some of how I like to repurpose things or make things on my own. It can all lead back in some part to this book I read as a boy. I still remember trips out to the woods with my dad to scout deer and how much I enjoyed taking his hatchet with us to cut branches or small trees. I think I need to buy myself an old hatchet when I see one at an estate sale!

Is there a book you remember reading as a kid?

Special golf edition after Tiger’s win at the Masters.

 

Allbirds Tree Runners

I’ve been eyeing up a pair of Allbirds for years and pulled the trigger a couple of weeks ago. They really are as comfortable as all of their advertising says.

I couldn’t tell you the last time I had a pair of shoes made to be worn without socks, which is exciting for the summer. I’m curious to see how they go through the wash too.

Masters Sunday with Tiger in the Hunt

Sunday at the Masters is always a special day for golf fans. We get an early start today due to afternoon weather, there is a great leaderboard, and Tiger in the final group.

While walking around Cabela’s with Dad last night this hot sauce caught my eye. Could it be a sign? How about some original Tiger sauce for 18 holes?

Game 5

 

The Saginaw Spirit hold a 3-1 series lead over the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the second round of the OHL playoffs. Can they close out the series tonight?
