He also brought a “western” belt that went with the revolvers that had cartridge loops (which made no sense to me for a black powder gun) and a knife sheath.

I was recently invited to join a “writers’ conference” to explore the strengths and uses of ATVs and UTVs in the Anthrocite Outdoor Recreation Area in Shamokin Dam, Pennsylvania. Not only was it a gorgeous setting but I had a blast and learned a lot too. Hosted by Kawasaki, the event was educational, well planned, [...]
