You're Not Lost If You Can Still See the Truck

Finished August 26
You're Not Lost If You Can Still See the Truck: The Further Adventures of America's Everyman Outdoorsman by Bill Heavey

This is a collection of articles from Field & Stream, freelance articles and other writings from award-winning journalist Bill Heavey. Covering hunting from deer to ducks, and ants to turkeys; fishing for a variety from bass to tarpon; the retail side of the outdoors business; and Heavey's personal life, this collection has pieces both hilarious and touching.
The book is organized into four sections by date: 1988-1999, 2000-2004, 2005-2009, and 2010-2014.
The writing is stellar, the situations relatable, and the personalities large.
I enjoyed this book immensely despite knowing little of the details around the equipment that he includes here. I read several bits out loud to family members as I chuckled, and noted lines of great truth.
