Pitch a tent and defy the cold
The fair-weather campers are at home by the fireplace, the flurry of camping that goes with the major hunting seasons is finished and a lot of Oregon's public-owned campgrounds are buttoning up for the winter.
"The formal ones, the big ones" all are closed, said Ray Crist, public information officer for the Detroit district of Willamette National Forest. "We normally wouldn't be getting much use by now in our campgrounds anyway, as cold as it is."
There still are plenty of places to pitch a tent and build a campfire, and in a lot of cases fees have been waived until next spring.
Straight Shooting : Winter-time camping has plenty to offer in the Natural State
Thursday, November 6, 2003
The calendar says it’s November, but based on the recent weather, you have to wonder. With temperatures in the high 70s earlier this week, it’s hard to accept the fact that winter is here. It just seems like fall is refusing to release its grip on northwest Arkansas. But hey, who’s complaining?
While November to many means the end of the fishing season and the start of the traditional hunting year, there are a few who simply refuse to give up on fall activities. While many of our local campgrounds called it quits for the season on Oct.

You can set your own rules, within legal bounds, for
harvesting deer size and quantity, and within the rules
of the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Each person
can hunt and harvest the legal number of deer allowed in that county under state and
federal rules. You need to check current regulations
at the time you are hunting for game. Currently the buck limit is one buck in most if not all of these
counties. Rumor has it that this will be changed
by the time hunting season arrives for 1999. It is
possible we may have doe permits available on some
of the leases for this coming year.

Lodging in a Nutshell
Judy Williams, Contributing Writer
Since the turn of the 20th century, Branson, Missouri, has attracted visitors with its abundance of outdoor recreational activities and surprising array of live entertainment options.

Articles - Discovering Uganda - The Pearl of Africa
If you think that the typical Africa countryside doesn't offer you rolling emerald hills, snow capped mountains, misty forests and deep, crystal clear lakes then you haven't been to Uganda. Even though Uganda is a small country, it offers all of this and a lot more - white water rafting, gorilla tracking, game viewing and some of the best trekking in Africa. Most importantly, the friendly and relaxed locals all speak excellent English. What more could you ask for from an exotic holiday destination?
I arrived in Uganda after 2 months travelling in North Africa (Libya, Egypt and Sudan and another month in Ethiopia).

Their application read as follows: "Proposed improvement for 28 additional [campsites] to total 58 campsites and new home ... upgrade campground to get all 58 units on sewage sites also remove three cabins and one mobile home.

A bright orange backpack, an occasionally scruffy beard and assorted T-shirts all identify the newest adventurer and teacher to Walk Across America.
Don Vermilyea, a native of West Virginia, began his walk on Feb. 2, 2002, in Tucson, Ariz.
He has two missions. One is to visit every Church of the Brethren that invites him, and the second, which he finds harder and harder, is to reach out to people and teach them of the gospels and Jesus.
Vermilyea has visited one-fifth of the United States so far, and in every state he walks through, he aspires to "plant a seed" and share God's love with every one who will listen.

East Kansas Avenue and North Maxwell were shut down for more than an hour Thursday morning after a subcontractor boring for the traffic signal at Kansas and Maxwell hit a 2-inch gas line with an auger drill.
According to Brad Mahoney, chief inspector for Earles Engineering, the gas line had been relocated in preparation for the street reconstruction project, but it was not as deep as it needed to be to permit the installation of the signal light, the depth of which is mandated by federal law.
Florida To Prudhoe Bay, Alaska - Stuart Heaslet
Early in the planning stages, I had chosen a Motoport Ultra II two piece armored suit for the trip, complete with thermal liners. While it seemed to outsiders that the suit was too heavy for summer riding, this did not prove to be the case. Motoport has an interesting approach to engineering its gear, with removable thermal/moisture liners that zip inside the uncoated Cordura shell jacket and pant. Motoport has chosen not to slavishly subscribe to the notion that a good riding suit must have a waterproof outer shell, impervious to water.
Judge won't give up case
Post staff reporter
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington wants a judge hearing a case about alleged sexual abuse in the diocese to recuse himself because he is friends with a consultant in the case and because, as a high school student, he once went on a camping trip with one of the accused priests.
Judge Joseph "Jay" Bamberger, however, refused Thursday to step down from the class-action suit, arguing that the diocese was simply trying to shop for a more favorable forum.
The diocese plans to appeal Bamberger's decision to Kentucky Supreme Court Chief Justice Joseph Lambert.
