Are you looking for a great wintertime activity or workout? You can snowshoe in your local parks or find a trail in a state park. For me, I can snowshoe into the backcountry and see the splendor of nature. (stock photo) http://joeybeepodcast.com/podcasts/2020/A43SNOWSHOEREADY.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |...

This is the time of the year that the deer family go into the rut. Each species instinctually follows specific rituals.

So who are the people that say “Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer”. Too many completely stop their ‘summer enjoyment’ just because ‘summer is over’. It is time to end the ‘unofficial rules”!
