Writing About The Great Outdoors


"Writing about the Great Outdoors"

I have a friend who is the head pharmacist at a Walgreen’s store. When he's not dispensing medications, he's outdoors hunting and fishing. When he's not doing that, he's writing about it and taking very good photos of outdoor scenes. He’s a talented guy.

I’m not normally an outdoor chick, but lately I’ve been thinking about finding somewhere to place a small cabin so I can go and relax on weekends with an ice chest, a notebook and a camera. Yep. The bug has hit me. Between my pharmacist friend, Rudy, and my co-worker, Hoot Al, I’m thinking more about quiet time away from the city, a trail to walk on and a place to just think.

Many places take articles on these topics. Rudy writes a column for a regional newspaper on his thoughts about camping, hunting and fishing. Maybe I could write something similar on a city girl acclimating to the world of mosquitoes and toads. Who knows?  Maybe someone would give a hoot about it.
