NOTES FROM CHARLIE JR.
I’ve always been the type of person who has read the news-
paper and has tried to keep up with current events that are hap-
pening throughout the world. I’ve taken time off from it here
and there, but my curiosity always pulls me back. Now with 24/7
news cycles percolating all over the web (some of them are fake)
along with all of the cable news channels that are out there, it’s
really easy to be swept up by it all. With this past election that
we had in our country, it felt more like a tsunami sweeping me
That’s why we all need escapes from the everyday stresses
and pressures that most of us have to face day after day.
Whether it’s a project in your woodshop, a hike with your dog,
hunting with friends on the weekends, or with it being almost
gardening season again, getting outside and getting your hands
dirty. All of these things free up our mind from all the nonsense
that can pollute it. I’m a believer that it’s a good thing to be
informed, but there is a happy medium that has to come with it.
This comes to one of the reasons why we enjoy putting out issue
after issue. I do realize that for some of us, our magazine is
perceived as more of a way-of-life. For example, some of our
audience are living fully off-the-land. The things they may take
away from our magazine are essential to their every day survival,
which casts a more serious tone to the way they read the

happy that we can provide for both types of readers. Also, we
don’t discriminate either. It doesn’t matter to us what party
you voted for, where you live, what you do for a living, and so
on. You can always find a home here where you can share
ideas, learn new things, or escape to a much simpler time.
These are the qualities that are the foundation of the
For those of you who may be wondering where the hell is
Charlie Sr’s notes? He’s just taking another issue off from the
editorial pages while he patrols his local bay for redfish, trout,
or whatever else he finds. He’ll be gracing this page again in
our next issue. We have another jam-packed issue for you with
a special article from our good friend & special contributor
Dave Canterbury. Dave instructs us on how to set up a quick
5-minute shelter. You never know when that piece of knowledge
might come in handy. I hope everyone enjoys this issue and has
a fantastic spring!
