As spring takes it's place in the rear view mirror, we start looking ahead at the coming summer. This summer is looking up as the Coronavirus nightmare seems to be taking it's place there also. Restrictions were starting to be lifted as spring ended, and we hope that continues. Of course, that means a return to work. That makes a vacation so much more important. We can't think of a better place to take one than the great outdoors. Camping, fishing, herping, a trip the beach, they all come to mind as fantastic things to do.
It doesn't matter if it's the adventure of a lifetime, like the trip Mike and Dana took to Alaska a few years ago, or a short drive to a local fishing hole for a few days, it can do the soul good. You'll find a few of our videos from past summer trips we have taken by scrolling down to the bottom of this page. While we are still undecided on destinations, we plan to be taking a few more this summer to keep the videos coming!
As we create fresh content, you'll find that posted to our "Now Playing" page. You'll find that some fresh content posted with this update is there already, as well as links to a few other adventures we enjoyed in the past. Be sure to check back here, or follow our facebook page so you'll know when we post new videos! There's also additional video content posted on all the pages throughout our site. While you're here, be sure to check out our popular Frugal Fishing videos. These videos offer great action, with tips to help you catch more fish, and save a bit of money doing it! Also the Public Land Pope and Young videos, and our Herping Maryland series. The former follows Mike on his personal quest for a trophy buck on public land with archery gear, a quest he hasn't finished yet. But those videos do include hunting and scouting tips that resulted in a buck being taken that was very close to meeting that mark. The later link will take you herping with us to explore the fascinating reptiles and amphibians that call Maryland home.
A summer vacation is a great way to get together and spend some time with family. We know Michael and Matt, as well as their significant others Siobhan and Desiree all need a break. They all worked through the pandemic as essential staff, making a break even more important. We also know Chris did as well, and would love to try and get the whole crew together as we have in years past. While we don't know if that's practical this summer, with all the conflicting schedules and lack of planning, we'll see what happens.
Whatever the case, we hope this summer is as memorable as the past spring was, that was highlighted by a wonder of mother nature that wont soon be forgotten. The emergence of the periodical cicada, an event that only happens every 17 years that we had to document, you can click here to see that video!
Wherever your paths take you, we hope you find time to enjoy a few outdoor adventures of your own!
