A First

     This is the first weekend I haven’t wanted to be out camping in a long stretch of weekends.  The forecast looks cold, windy and wet with the possibility of our first snowflakes.  This first weekend of October Mike and his dad are out in the woods for a couple of nights, no jealousy here on my part they can have fun without me.

     The only thing I may miss is seeing the Harvest Moon in the BWCA.  But if it is as cloudy as the forecast predicts then I wouldn’t be able to see it anyway.  These weekends are reserved for time in the woods.  The grouse are abundant, deer are on the move and the Minnesota moose hunt begins this weekend. 

     Here’s hoping everyone has a safe and wonderful first weekend in October.  And to my big sister Angela…
