Slow Down and Smell the River (cont.)

Please forgive me I seemed to hit the wrong button.


There was no Wi-Fi or cell phones.  You actually sat around the campfire and talked to EACH other.  No vides players in your vehicles, IPads or Smart Phones.  With all of these things missing in life one would actually slow down and smell the river.  We  fished.  We swam.  Made rope swings.  Most importantly, we talked.  Yep I know it is hard to believe.  I enjoyed those days immensely.  Those were the days my friend…… those were the days.


I challenge each and every one of you to put the toys of modern technology down and go to the river.  You don’t need to have a boat to enjoy the river.  Go out and wet a line.  If you don’t like to take the fish off the hook then just don’t bait the hook.  Build a fire or better yet camp on the river bank for the night.  Most importantly relax, clear your mind and close your eyes and listen to the creatures of the river and………… smell the river.

All the pics above are on the Bourbeuse River in Missouri and were taken with a $99 camera.
