My Calendar Runneth Over

My Calendar Runneth Over By Brian Wright brian@outdoorguysradio.com Before the beginning of each year I work on my schedule for the upcoming seasons. First, I review the past year, evaluate my body of journalistic work, and determine if I accomplished what I set out to do. This helps with planning the year at hand. Seems as though this should be pretty easy. Since I primarily focus on angling and/or destinations, you would think planning the year would be easy. After all, look at a

Although I have the best of intentions to work hard, save my money, and whittle down my to do list around the house, when May rolls around I just seem to falter. And in a big way.

Weekend At The Lake Catalyst For Love Of Outdoors

The other day I was pondering the beginnings of my love for the outdoors, particularly cabins and lakes. My first memory of catching the outdoors bug seems to revolve around a trip to Lone Star Lake near Lawrence, KS. I suppose I was probably 10 years old. A childhood friend was fortunate enough that his dad had a small waterfront cabin at Lone Star — a beautiful lake of some 110 acres — and I  was invited to go for a weekend to “open the cabin” for the season. I was fascin
