Help Along The Way

None of us get to where we are by ourselves. We had our parents, classmates, peers and friends all help us along the way. As I go about my merry way plodding my next hunt, I reflect on where I've come from and how much I've learned. Some stuff I've learned the old fashioned way by freezing my butt off, poor planning, stubbornness or just plain ignorance. Other things I have learned through reading or having others teach me.

Kinda like starting this blog. When my friend Cristina Acosta suggested I start a blog about women's hunting, I got a bit squirmish in my chair. Then after we finished lunch I avoided her for a few weeks until finally I met up with her and said "sure lets start my blog". She told me that if I didn't like doing it I can just "delete it". Oh great that sounds even better, now I had an out. She convinced me I had plenty to talk about, and that I don't seem to tire of sharing my hunting adventures. This is true. So she knows me pretty well, I have trusted her and again she has taught me much. I just learned where the "spellcheck" key was 2 months ago. I thought that was pretty cool! She is an amazing artist in her own right and incredibly insightful. The colors of her life are bold, vivid, bright primary colors reflective of her roots. Her passion she displays on canvas, wood and other substrates. Mixed mediums layering rich textures of life's expressions and experiences. If you haven't checked out her site yet I highly recommend it. In the end we are all connected in one way or another and in ways we are far from understanding. I just wanted to say thank you to Cristina for your help along the way. Also thank you to NorCal Cazadora for your help and feedback, much appreciated.

I'm so glad to see more women blogging about the outdoors. Also, please know that part of what the OBS is here for is to encourage bloggers. If you have questions or need help with something, please do ask. We'll be happy to help, and certainly happy to encourage the writing of another great outdoor blog.
