So beautifully put.History has a reason, un-explained but is a precursor of the future and future events, A time line of the future if you will, although happening in the past, but to repeat itself only with different actors. We attempt to replicate it with our hobby and craft but can only go so far. Was those times any better than now maybe maybe not depends on the individual and their concepts. So the quest and flame burns bright in some of us who long for the shall we say old ways. Go forth into the cathedral of the wilderness, long rifle and powder with shot and ball, find the solitude that has been lost too so many, relish the experiences that await you for we are here only a fleeting moment in time.
