My Mother used to yell this expression to (or "at") me all of the time. One of my favorite things to do was "get outside"...and "away" from it all. Come to think of it...It still is!
Welcome everyone !! This is the place to stop by, pitch your tent, take a stroll or just relax. Camping, hiking, backpacking...Whatever your outdoor interest is, this is a place to share it!
With the extremely capable help and hands of my friends, Tony LaPetri and Mike Webb, you will find this campsite friendly and informative. Feel free to share your experiences with us. You're always welcome at our fire!
Best, Capt. Chris

Thanks so much Guys: it was a great experience....really!
Just 500 miles in 34 days. First 17 days constantly under the rain and snow once!
A tough test for your body and your...soul.
Lot of Americans too....

Sorry to All RMK Nutts here....I did not carried any of my beloved Randalls.
I reached my starting point (French Pyrenees) by car; but once got my target, the back journey was scheduled by plane.....no luggage to check-in....just my 65litres back-pack!
I was afraid one of my RMK could be confiscated......
So I decided to carrie a Chris Reeve Mnandi folder as it fitted so perfectly on a small pocket of my backpack...just near my neck...so I was able to grab it very easyly at my need.
I didn't take that little useful knife back with me: I gift it to a fellow who shared the bad & the good of this experience....it was my sign of a heartful gratitude to our friendship.

Michael,
We are talking about the "Camino de Santiago de Compostela" or ...in your case...S.James Walk...or...S.Jacobweg...
It something people does since near 1.000 years...
San Francesco did it in the year 1200....
There are various CAMINO but the most walked is the one I did: the Camino Frances or French walk. Leaving from Saint Jean Pied de Porte(France) to Santiago de Compostela(Galizia, Spain) are something like 818 km or...500 miles.
Hundreds of thousands "PEREGRINOS" walk this way every year.
You should see the movie "THE WAY" with M.Sheen....I think
It is a great experience I suggest to everybody...once...in your life.

Guido,

Thank-You for the info. I did some reading on that once I had the name. It definitely has my interest. I told my wife sometime back after watching a segment about hiking the Appalachian Trail, that I would like to do that one day. The want is still there, and seeing that you have completed something similiar, provides more inspiration.

I bet it is good for both mind & body. Thanks again...

Hey, carrying a Chris Reeve instead of a Randall isn't such a sin. After all, I believe that the Chris Reeve folder is the "Randall" of folders. By the way, Chris is from Boise, Idaho, you know.

At the start of this thread, the Capt stated "get outside".

I got tired of indoor cycling and went outdoors the other day. It was about 3C/37F. It was pretty cool to start, but by the time I got back, 1+15 later, I was a lot warmer.

Now isn't that a "fashion statement".

Nice Rod

I see your housed number is 5, is that why you like RMK model 5's so much?
We have snow on the ground here, so not much mountain biking for me lately

Rod, you have inspired me to get on a similar outfit today, and pedal my $75 Trek 21-speed mountain bike bought at a garage sale.

I'd like to get my Holdsworth frame English bike equipped with "Campy" running gear back in service. I can't figure out why the Chinese can't make a quality sew-up tubular tire like I used to ride. Guess I have to get up to speed with clinchers.

Nice bike. What make?

It is a Specialized Secteur Elite. Bought it when we lived in Ireland. Put on about 3500 kms/2100 miles on it, this year.

Guido
Been at it since mid November. Denyse is doing 5 days a week at the gym. I am either at the gym, swimming or spinning class. We have about two months here before we head to France.

Never know what you will see when you get outside in D.E.TX.

Shot this though the Jeep window on the way to Caddo Lake.

No, it's not Louie Gohmert's office reacting after hearing that John Boehner was re-elected as speaker of the house.

Well I braved the cold of Northern NY state yesterday and shot a USPSA match. It was -15C/about 5F when we got up and it did warm up, a bit, by match time.
That is me with my wheel gun. You did not want to spend much time with your hands out of your mitts.

Just spent a week in Northern Ontario, visiting family and friends. Saw a Black Bear sow and two cubs, right by the road, but by the time we got turned around, for a Kodiak moment, they were in the bush.
Got out fishing one day. Got a couple of lake trout. Pic 1 is my wife's cousin, holding one I caught. He was the guide!!!, running the boat and netting the fish.
Great week, no bugs, 28C+/80F and blue skies. Don't want summer to end, but early goose season opens next week!!

I do spend a fair amount of time out of doors. But it is usually on my bike. Not a hope of taking pics and pedaling at the same time though!!!

Mountain biking is great! Me and the dog have a great time on the trails. Without any real mountains I ride a hardtail. Once the kids are older I'll check out some Colorado and Pacific Northwest trails.

A few years ago. Whale watching on the Saint Laurent river, just outside Tadoussac, Canada. So far, the best "shot" in my life.

Attila,

Have seen other similar examples but the water cascading off the tail adds life to the shot. Well done!
