There was a time when one would be
hard pressed to find a woman who was willing to go fishing, hiking,
backpacking, or hunting, much less one who actually wanted to participate in
these activities. However, theses days it’s not uncommon at all to find a woman
in the field, in a tree stand, on the water, or hiking the Appalachian Trail
for that matter.
Even today not all women are
interested or willing to attempt one of these sports or outdoor activities.
More often than not, it will depend on the woman and/or the activity. You’ll
find, for instance, that some women will attempt anything at least once, while
others will only have an interest in certain types of outdoor sports or
activities. You may find one woman that will enjoy stream fishing but doesn’t
care a bit about fishing from a boat. Likewise, you may find other women that
prefer dove hunting over deer hunting and really care nothing about fishing.
Over the years men have used
hunting, fishing, hiking, and other types of outdoor recreation as a means of
escape and therapy. Women need escape and therapy as well. Don’t get me wrong;
I still enjoy going to the lake or the field by myself or with my buddy from
time to time. However, I consider myself very lucky because it turns out my
woman has come to love boating and fishing just as much as I do. I don’t get
out in the dove fields much any more, and I never got into deer hunting. My
favorite therapy is fishing. When my lady and I go fishing, we both leave all
of our troubles and worries at the boat ramp. It takes little effort to relax
and enjoy the outdoors, the tranquility, and the beauty that Mother Nature has
to offer. We have both come to realize that this time is very therapeutic for
the sole, and we find it equally therapeutic for our relationship. It’s hard to
explain how such time can remove you from the every day frustrations and
distractions of life in general. … Read More
Here’s a cool way to convince your
spouse you really need one of those techie watches to help you with your
favorite outdoor sport. Depending on the type of exercise or sport you enjoy
here are three ideas to justify a new watch. The most obvious sport is backpacking.
Another sport is hiking, but have you thought about swimming?
Of course you need a compass if
you are hiking or backpacking. There are so many sites online now that give you
access to all kinds of maps to use for any outdoor activity. The advantage of a
digital compass on your watch is it is always instantly available. Your digital
compass is right there on your wrist so that you can constantly check your
Getting lost is the last thing you
want to do when you are outdoors. So, battery life is another concern. Your
watch, and compass, is of little use if its battery stops. Problem solved, many
outdoor watches have an atomic timekeeping feature.
You may think you do not need a
compass if just going for a afternoon hike. But, many people get lost when just
going for a short hike. Sometimes this type of problem is the most serious,
because the person is unprepared for the weather conditions. They just thought
there was no need to prepare on a short hike. But, a wrong turn or a quick
change in the weather can create a life threatening situation out of a pleasant
Another hazard to be aware of when
hiking or backpacking is the temperature. A sudden temperature change is a sign
of changing weather. Being alert to shifts in the current temperature will help
you stay ahead of any weather fronts that might be approaching.
It is best to always be prepared
for the worst, but we seldom think about all the consequences. So, the least we
can do is have a quality watch with a compass with us at all times.
Most people don’t wear their watch
when swimming, but with today’s watches you can wear your watch anywhere. Many
are safe … Read More
If you are a business owner, it is important to keep your employees in mind when running your business. Your employees are just as important as your customers and in many cases; they act as the ambassadors of your business more than you do. You may be busy with other tasks and your employees are on the front lines interacting with customers. As the first people your customers deal with, it is important that your employees act professionally and compassionately.
If your employees are unhappy, it will translate through their attitudes when they are dealing with clients. It does not take a lot to keep an employee happy. You need to give them a fair wage for their services, give them comfortable working conditions and occasionally recognize their hard work and loyalty to your company. There are several ways to give recognition to an outstanding employee. You can honor them with a once in a lifetime experience like a trip somewhere. If you have someone who is a high achiever, consider scratching a few things off their bucket lists and sending them on a sports vacation. Imagine how exciting it would be for your number one salesperson to go to the Super Bowl or All Star Game as a reward for their hard work.
Another option for rewarding employees is with gift certificates.
It might be hard to know exactly what to give several employees all at once, so
if you need to recognize the efforts of several people, use gift cards. This is
also a great idea for the holiday season when you want to end the year
acknowledging how much the people who work for you mean to the company.
Parties are another great way to say thanks. Many business
owners bring employees together for lavish celebrations for special occasions
and celebrations. If your company has met its sales goals or you have just
planned and executed a major event, it is cause for celebration. Throw a bash
for those who worked together to make sure things turned out great. If you want
to keep things … Read More

scary. The yachts are equipped with kitchens, so we can save some money by not
