Mysteries Hidden

From the time I was a little boy, I’ve been fascinated with the mysterious and reachable only with the imagination. During my tad pole and critter tracking to the den days as a very young boy I learned that there were such things. There was one such on my gramps’ property. A river spring that came up under a big flat rock. I could hear it. I could smell it and nearly taste it, but the rock was far too big and heavy for a small boy to move. IF I could have moved it, the mysteries that I would have uncovered. I searched high and low in trying to figure out where it came from or where it went, but I never did. I’ve since gone back to see what brook or such might be nearby in the neighborhood–in places that I couldn’t go of an age. The mysteries remain un-delved. Since then, I’ve found many more. Spring seeps, gurgling mysteries from an otherwise untelling hillside or the most intriguing of all–that place in a small mountain side where a small brook flows from under and behind large glacial boulders embedded into the mountain side. Where do they come from. IF I could get inside and somehow follow its course. Maybe it would open up into a cavern large enough to paddle a small boat. What critters and what fish have made their way to those hidden spots for home and hunting. What fine things would be revealed if a light was struck. Would the waters be sweeter for being deeper. The thoughts still give me shivers…just like they did in the imagination of a little boy.

  1. Greetings,

    I would like to introduce you to RedRam – everyday merino thermal underwear for men and women. Made from premium merino wool, this new range is ideal for hiking, snow sports, hunting, fishing, camping, sports spectating and any other cold-weather activities – even for wearing as a base layer while at work.

    Priced to offer excellent value for money ($29.99 – $67.99), RedRam provides people with the chance to upgrade from their synthetics to a natural fiber. (Unlike synthetics, merino is naturally odor-resistant – with no added chemicals – and is highly breathable, to prevent clamminess and overheating during exercise. It dries fast and can be washed in the washing machine.)

    RedRam is currently available at Gander Mountain and, and will be available at many more stores from Fall/Winter ‘11.

    Please let me know if you would like samples or hi-res images of any of the pieces highlighted on our website,
