Being recently retired I have more time to do things I enjoy. One such thing is deer season so this year I was going to hunt more. I own a small parcel of land I planned to put a stand and hunt from. The land has never been posted and is open for all to use. It is what is left of my grandfathers sugar place.
This is the tree stand I put up. It is a nice strip of hard wood kinf of a transition area not too far from here is a southren high point where deer like to bed.
Have not seen a deer in the woods yet this year. I do have to addmit I did not hunt very much. I got a flu and was sick 3 days and ended up with this cough that will not go away. Kind of hard to take a stand and cough all day.

Squirrel hunting was a past time that we did as children there was more chasing than killing back then but I loved it. Today I still hunt squirrels because it makes me feel like a child again. Now being retired I have plans to do much more of it.

10-9-12 We have arivved home. It was a great trip I wish we could have done it 10 years earlier some of the drives between towns were long. We drove over 3000 miles for the whole trip counting getting lost and missed turns. The people in Ladrador, New Foundland, and New Brunswick were great. The land in Labrador below Port Hope Simpson is Breathtaking.

Tomorrow my wife and I leave Georgia, Vermont for an epic journey to Labrador, Canada. We are going to try to make it to Port Hope Simpson. So excited don’t know if I will sleep much. No hurry at all we have 3 weeks before she has to be back here for work
These are pictures we took last year on out road trip up the coast of Maine
As of September 28 2012 I have retired as in I don't work any more. I knew this day was coming 24 years ago when I started this job .Yup I have plowed and graded roads dug ditch and delt with the genral public long enough. I have not planned my life beyond the date I retired. I am dyslexia so I will apoliogize for my spelling and other errors. If my wife is not in the room with me it can be bad. I would like to fish more, grow more of what we eat. and have my life be less stressful. To start with we will be leaving for Labrador, Canada September 30.2012 . Hope to do some post on the trip.
