Thanksgiving style

A grey day. Wore a red vest to avoid getting shot by hunters. Putting up the canoe and buttoning down the camp. Sometimes a boring holiday is best. Made traditional Pilgrim fare (macaroni and cheese and a hot dog) and watched bad football.

Grey logoless LL Bean sweatshirt is one of the best deals out there these days. As is basic Lands End down vest.

I remember reading an old hunting magazine many years ago in which they reported on a study which suggested that wearing bright colors when hunting can sometimes attract the attention (and aim) of hunters. I don't remember all the details, but it probably had something to do with the perennial problem of guns + idiots = nothing good.

Usually it's guns + idiots x booze = disaster.

Connecticut hunting regs require wearing something like 600 square inches of blaze orange clothing, which annoys the pheasant shootin' crowd.
