Before I get into brand new stuff this year, I just want to briefly follow up on a few things I've mentioned here previously. First and foremost, I want to draw your attention to some fine bloggers I've highlighted for blog of the week. Many of you already follow these folks, but in case one slipped by, here are the blogs up to this point.
- Adventures...with Dad (formerly Fishing With Dad)
- I Don't Wear Pink Camo to the Woods
- The Outdooress
- A "Focus" In the Wild
- Massanutten Game Trails
- Following Ghost
- The Run*A*Round Ranch Report
- The Hunter's Wife
You'll find lots of great information, beautiful photos, and well written articles in these blogs. Check 'em out if you haven't already.
Have you ever read a gear or product review and later down the road wondered if the author still felt the same way about the item in question? I want to briefly follow up on a couple of things I reviewed. The first is my review of the Redfield Rebel 10x42 Binoculars from back in October. I used these all through hunting season in both rain and snow as well as just for general viewing. Several friends and family members also tried them out. My initial assessment stands. These are excellent, well built binoculars! I enjoy using them and foresee having them for many years. The price is very nice, too.
The other product I want to follow up on are the Work Horse 6.0 boots from Magnum Boots USA. I have worn these boots nearly every day and they are just as comfortable now as they were when I wrote the initial review. Lately, they've been exposed to sleet and snow, but my feet stay bone dry. I've experienced no fit or manufacturing issues at all. They still hold the top spot as my favorite pair of boots!
And, finally, this wasn't going to be part of my redux, but I guess it's fitting since it keeps coming back. Once again while trying to get caught up and comment on your fine blogs, I had time out error issues. After an hour and a half and only being able to successfully comment on a few blogs, I gave up in frustration. Blogger is the only site that gives me grief like this. The time out errors I get when trying to comment or just load a blog page are ridiculous. Half the time I can't load my own blog. Maybe they're trying to tell me something...like I stink and should get off their system!
Well, I'm not caving to the establishment. They can kiss my gun-toting, hat wearing, deer hunting, truck driving, horse riding, Bluegrass arse!
Cool. I suddenly feel better.
