My bags are packed and later today it’s time to start the road trip. I’m heading “Upta Camp”. It’s that time of the year, when I make the annual road trip to the big woods of the Northeast Kingdom for deer season.
I should arrive at camp to a warm fire, and the boys will be telling all those familiar hunting stories of the old days. The one that got away, the massive rack of antlers, or that all time favorite, I know where he’s at. “where that big buck is probably hiding this year”
There have been many decades of stories and laughter from those who have hunted from this special place in the deep woods. The camp has been part of many adventures through the years, and has always given back a fond new memory to go home with at the end of every trip.
Good food, good friends and fond memories. That’s what camp is really about. A Big Buck is like getting a little extra pie at the end of dinner.
So with all that said, the postings here are now suspended. The reason, no cell signal. To get a signal, I have to head out of camp at night and walk up near the high spots on the mountain, and it’s really kind of scary out there in the dark!
