Hello, and thank you for stopping by our place. I am a native of New Hampshire and grew up in a very rural part of the Granite State. Over the years, we have seen many changes in the area, but it’s still home to many of the things we all love about the Northeast. I started this website and a YouTube channel to help preserve some of the traditional ways of life that many of my friends and I still enjoy today.

Our seasons start January 1 and go through December 31. That might sound extreme, but that’s what this life is all about. The winter months bring ice fishing and snowshoeing, followed by our maple-syrup gathering and processing. The spring opens up much of the fishing, with salmon and white perch in abundance. The month of May is the time to forage for fiddleheads, and the streams are full of delicious brook trout. The summer months provide wild berries and mushrooms of all kinds. As summer comes to an end, we start prepping for the hunting seasons, which include small game, deer, moose, and bear. Then, in December, we hope for some good ice for ice fishing, and the whole cycle starts over. Thanks again for checking things out here, and feel free to browse the trading post and enjoy the videos.
