How about we talk about catfish now? :lol:
If you want to talk fishing, well, I guess that'll be ok.~Lynyrd Skynyrd



Unless you meant the other catfishing(luring someone online with a fake persona)...i guess it's a real thing? :roll:
Actually I had just read the catfish thread on here. It was my poor attempt to lighten the mood. :(

Your post made me recall Tolkien:

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost,
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
We do not see things as they are; we see things as we are. -Anais Nin
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. -Aesop

Why should I apologize for becoming a monster?
Did anyone apologize for making me one?

I have wandered a lot on life. But I have never been lost. However, I can think of twice when camp wasn't where it was supposed to be. In fact it moved miles from where I left it while I was wandering.

When I was in scouts a couple of us older boys hiked into a backcountry lake and set up a compass course for the younger boys. They hiked in the next day with the adults and each of us was assigned two or three boys to watch over as they navigated the course, which was moderately difficult.
At around 11:30 PM we made it back to camp and I was getting ripped a new one until I reminded the scoutmaster that his instructions were to not help them at all and take as long as needed for them to figure it out. I was never worried as I knew exactly where camp was. :lol:

I have wandered some too, never been lost. Was slightly bewildered for a few days in the mountains a couple of times though.............
