February Journal (Feb 2013)
To Do Nothing By Accident. It's an incredible concept, the subject of an upcoming blog post, and really my theme for the month. In February, I managed the construction of a wetland project I helped fund three years ago, I had an article published in the Backcountry Journal, I turned down two corporate sponsorships for this blog (just didn't work out), consulted on a National Geographic film about swamps - pretty sure that was a professional blunder on my part, as I didn't ask for any recognition or anything, and I, as usual, tried to juggle two jobs, fatherhood, and marriage.
For the first time in several years, I didn't push myself to get outdoors in February. For the first time in the 6 year history of this blog, I did not complain that I wasn't getting outdoors enough in February. I can't wait to go fishing, but it's been nice to not worry about it. With three wetland and stream construction projects underway in the same month, it's not like there was time for it anyway.
