The Snow Walker
« on: February 06, 2018, 09:49:41 AM »
Coldfeet, a grade school teacher in Long Island, NY happens to be covering a 2nd grade class today, student's showed him this book.

The Snow Walker: Describes the adventures of a twelve-year-old Bronx boy who ventured out on homemade snowshoes to help his neighbors during the Blizzard of 1888.



Coldfeet and I will be heading out for 5 days next week and by the looks of it we'll have around 3' of snow for our adventure...

I hope he has a blast. You also, of course, but he seems to really want to escape the tarred section of the planet for a while.

Hey Trapmusher, your exactly right.  I need that good old nature medicine.   Check out that video of the guy bike riding in the Artic!   Oh man.   I would love to experience that but in a much smaller time frame.    I actually told my wife that this coming journey in a few weeks is a tune up for Canada next year.   Bio, I planted the seed in her head!   Slow and steady, take pics and enjoy the views, that's all I need.  Best to all.
