All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter


"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."
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

There are hidden gems in the world. Some to be unearthed; others to rise up.

Are you a wanderer?

    My friend, Jean Tushar and I purchased our Eno Hammocks last year while on vacation in Iowa and it has changed our lives. We liken ourselves to the Extreme Hammockers from Colorado. They are much younger than we are but we have the enthusiasm. We hammock year round in Wisconsin and it has opened us up to explore all the wonderful nature trails, especially near Lake Michigan. We bought spikes for our boots and walked the ice-canoes. we are having so much fun living life. We can’t wait for retirement so we can explore other states.
