Colorado Elk Hunt Packing List 2018 and “what I wish I packed”

Happy Sunday Family, Three months ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to go on an elk hunt, in Colorado, with my Dad, Uncles, and Grandfather. During that time I kept a list of ways that would have made an already perfect adventure, even more perfect.

A Different Type of Tuesday….

I have been hard on myself for too many years; it started sometime after my freshman spring-semester of college. I was in competitive dance in high-school and I was good at it; I wasn’t the smartest in my class; a lot of subjects based on creative were easy for me, and for others…I knew I…
