Ryley fishing at Camp Independence, Heritgae Scout Reservation July 2015
As those famous Staind lyrics go, “It’s Been Awhile”... Almost four years to be exact. During my hiatus I have managed to keep myself busy. My kids have grown up. I’ve become a little bit older and a lot wiser. But many things have stayed the same. I still love to hunt, fish, hike, camp and enjoy the outdoors. So I have decided yet again to make another go of this thing called social media blogging. To coincide with this newfound endeavor I have decided to change some things on the blog to better reflect who I am now and what has happened to me since last I posted.

First and foremost I have changed the name to Ryley Outdoors. This reflects where I currently am in life. My three older boys are now in their late teens finishing up high school and starting college. So from here on out it’s just me and my 9 yr old son, Ryley. My focus has been to concentrate on getting him in the outdoors, to experience what nature has to offer instead of stuck inside playing video games like his peers. I have been pretty successful with this over the last year and in the coming weeks I will share some of those awesome experiences with you.

I am currently in the midst of redesigning the blog. My hopes are to make it more mobile friendly and to personalize this space. I will also try and steer away, as I move forward, from stock images and hope to populate the background of the blog with a worthy photo all my own. If things prove successful I will transition this space over to a more permanent website. Keep your fingers crossed!

As in the past I will be concentrating my efforts on outdoor activities which I know and love. You will see lots more fishing, hunting and scouting adventures featuring Ryley (and sometimes me). A new twist will be that I will be occasionally posting gear reviews for products I receive from Experticity as part of their #ExpertGear program. 

I look forward to what 2016 will bring in terms of adventure and opportunities. Until then keep taking your kids outdoors…
