Thanks for the great article

Sunday, October 19th, 2008


My name is Dustin and my wife’s name is Diane.  I just stumbled across [the Backwoods Home website] today. I only recently began looking at sites such as this.

My wife and I have not spent much time shooting the past few years.  (In fact  from 2001-2006 we did not fire a  single round.) We just wanted to comment your article.  Miss Fitz’ Guide to Guns, Part II Ammo You Can Bet Your Life On was great We thought it was incredibly insightful and informative and easily understood by my wife (She also found it interesting).

Thank you so much we are looking forward to more.

Homemade Bread

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008


I took a couple of loaves of homemade bread (half whole wheat and half bread flour) to a work potluck this week.  I’d started them early in the morning before work and they came out of the oven at work just in time for lunch.  The ladies at work just raved about how good they were, and I got several requests for the recipe.  Interest seemed to diminish somewhat when I started explaining the process.  “First, you grind up a couple of cups of hard red wheat…”.
