Heck no.. too cold
I fish the coastal rivers for salmon all summer and that's enough.
I am with you! Winter is good for many things, but maybe not fishing.
It is getting better every day I guess. Hard to call them a fish shack anymore.
Wow. But I don't know if that qualifies as a "Simplistic Pleasure".
Went out snowshoeing with Mrs. Pickled for a few hours today.
Only the bottom of my goatee is grey. The rest of that is frozen snot. Just so ya know.
Nice! (On all levels )
Not today. A few weeks ago.
Ice crystals in the nose could be a simple pleasure! Or it could be just cold.
I was actually sweating like a pig. It was just that temp I didn't know how to dress. Dressed more for the wind chill, and we ended up tucked in the woods the whole time.
Great photos brother!
Keeping Time with a tuning fork and battery.
Carburetors and wind.
A couple of good ones.
I love Bulova. Very nice Accutron! Gotta be able to tell time out on the bike.
I take this one for granted.
The view every time I leave the house:
That is really beautiful. I hear you about taking for granted. Here's one:
I live three minutes from where we put in to kayak this little stretch of the Mississippi. Depending on where you want to get out, you can spend as little as two hours. Sometimes I go years without hitting it. Not anymore.
I have a collection of the Accutron tuning fork driven watches. I think they are the epitome of high tech / low tech. The second hand is a sweep second hand driven by the frequency of a tuning fork and at the time, they were known to be precise enough to be the used on the Apollo 15 mission when NASA determined how important accurate timing would be for the mission. Although my Accutron Space View is a neat looking conversation piece because it is skeletonized, the favorite of my collection is my 1965 Astronaut model.
Cool spot! I live at around 5200 ft. The dark band in my pic is the foothills, 15 miles away and about 9000 ft tall. The white band is the Front Range peaks. They are 50-70 miles away and between 13 and 14000 ft tall.
That is a unique and interesting choice in collectible watches. The Tuning Fork logo borne by Bulova watches is an iconic design. I love it! My daily watch is a Bulova automatic, straight low tech goodness.
My wife and I did a little snowshoeing this afternoon. Since we were close by, we thought we would swing by the Mississippi headwaters; neither of us had seen it in the winter. The first two pics are where it spills out of Lake Itasca, the third pic is looking at a few of the first 500'.
