My Office in the Great Outdoors

A couple weeks ago, I got to spend some time in the woods hunting deer. And as a writer, I can sometimes mix business and pleasure by writing while I hunt.

You can bet it’s tough to manage a laptop in a climbing stand, but I can type up some stuff on my smart phone. Sometimes I can even hit the woods with a laptop so I can edit text and photos, download and upload, and whatever else needs to be done–all without losing any hunting time.

And hunting time is important.

Here’s my view from the stand I was sitting in when I took the photo above. You can click it to make it larger.

I. Love. My. Job.
