Portable Generator

You’re thinking of going “off-grid” and for your main power source, you’ve decided to go with either solar power or windmill generation. Good plan, I love it! If you’re like me, you’ll have plenty of power tools in your workshop. Things like a circular saw, bench grinder, mitre saw, radial arm saw, table saw, drill press… all of these will work well on a small portable generator. I recommend you get one rather than relying on your main power supply [Read More]

Explore, Scout, Recon, Snoop…

“Do NOT go on an unguided fly-in fishing trip without one of these!  Okay, I’ll repeat that and I’ll even put the friggin’ thing in red… Do NOT go on an unguided fly-in fishing trip without one of these! “ No, not Snoop Dog, for christ-sake! Snoop around… as in, snoop around the lake. Do some exploring, some scouting, some recon and some snooping. My favourite fly-in fishing trip is to an outpost camp, where you are dropped off, on your [Read More]

My Big Rack

DSCN0861

“Plenty of power, free of charge. Sort of…” As per usual, the Rugged Dude (that would be me, ya cement head) starts an article with a weird, if not somewhat, dumb title. A “big rack” could be taken as a nice big-ass buck with a set of antlers pushing the 150 mark. Or, a “big rack” could be provoke visions of a smokin’ hot chick with a very large set of… wait for it… titties. That’s right, I said titties. [Read More]

Awesome French Fries

Awesome French Fries

Who in their right mind doesn’t just love good French fries?  I do… but, I know they’re not the healthiest thing in the world for a 51 year old dude to eat, so I indulge only on occasion.   And, I normally don’t brag about my own cooking… but, right now, I’ll gladly bend that rule.  My French fries are the best on the planet!  Well, maybe not the best on the planet, but they’re damn good!  However, my fries weren’t always [Read More]

Northwestern Ontario’s Walleye Wonderland

Northwestern Ontarios Walleye Wonderland

“Me and my ultra-rugged fishing buddy, Mike (Plexy) Plexman with a juicy Ogoki River walleye. (Mattice Lake Outfitters)” I don’t know how many walleyes I’ve caught in my life. Thousands and thousands, I’m sure. And, the vast majority of them were caught somewhere in northwestern Ontario, deep in the Canadian Shield, north of Thunder Bay. I’m not sure how many walleyes I eaten in my life. Not thousands… but, hundreds? Damn straight, Jack! My preferred fly-in fishing trip is to [Read More]

Lucky?

Lucky-deer

“RD with his “lucky” buck.” Sitting fifteen feet above the frozen ground with a stiff, November breeze smacking you in the face can make a guy appreciate things like hot coffee, long underwear and woodstoves.  It can also make a guy appreciate whitetail deer hunting. As I very slowly moved my head from side to side I noticed a quick movement to my far right.  My heart rate accelerated and I suddenly forgot how cold I was.  But, within two [Read More]
