exactly outdoor fun... but it is something
fun related to the outdoors.
A friend posted a YouTube video on Facebook
called Camp Coffee by Jerry Vandiver.
I was instantly charmed and felt the urge
to get back out into the wilds. I decided
I'd like to hear the rest of the album.
the disc arrived I played it several times
to get a good feel for it. The eighth
track was very familiar to me as it is
on one of the Canoesongs albums
that gets a lot of play in our Jeep enroute
to our canoe trips. The song, Under
the Same Sky, was written by Vandiver
and sung by Cindy Church. It is one of
my all-time favorite canoeing songs. It
was nice to have it on this album too.
to Start a Fire is the romantic comedy
of the lot and it makes me smile every
time I hear it. It's about a couple who
have paddled all day, set up camp, and
the woman suggests they start a fire.
The man goes and gathers everything that
he needs although he is very tired because
he's that kind of sweet guy. However,
that wasn't quite what she meant.
This is a
must-have compilation of tunes to listen
to while you are pouring over your maps
or in the kitchen prepping your backcountry
meals to put on the dehydrator. We listen
to it while we are packing the gear and
even some Saturday mornings while we are
relaxing at home over a cup of coffee.
is the video that originally piqued my
interest in True and Deep.
