Just got home from two weeks up in the UP with my father, took and wore one watch only, and it was the first time in forever. I took my Dolphin as it is small and comfortable to wear under heavy clothing. Maybe 25 years ago, maybe more, Don, Dad and I went up to the UP for a few hunts in a couple of years. WE had a blast but it was a long drive up to Iron Mountain just on the border of Wisconsin, and we stopped going. We always talked about going back and I guess time just got the better of us. Well, this spring Don passed away, and well, dad, dad was 86 on the day Kennedy was killed, so I got to thinking early in the year, If we were ever getting back it better be darn soon. So we made a memorial hunt and we got a cabin in Rapid River and we went. I bought a new 243 Savage so that if we found a nice spot dad could sit and watch overlooking a valley we had a long range shooter. I know he cannot walk like he used to, or sit as long, so we ended up not hunting the whole day like we used to but it was a great trip. We spent a bit more time in the casinos than I anticipated , but oh well, it was dads trip, probably for all intents and purposes the last major hunting trip, and it was perfect...

Now to find out what I have missed here.
