I'm rocking a pretty cool custom mask myself.

I got my company hooked up with Mossy Oak awhile back on some product offerings and Mossy Oak sent me a bunch of their new Mossy Oak Overwatch camo patternto check out. It had been sitting around for awhile so I had my mother in law make it into a bunch of masks for me and few hunting buddies. I'm the envy of all guys at the local Menards.

Linde, nice mask! great fabric!
I am down to using the Christmas print fabric for my current batch of masks. I am hoping we won't be using them when they are "in-season".

Very nice.

I suspect your wife is on the cutting edge of fashion. We will likely be living with some degree of masking for a while. Like hairstyles or eyeglasses, people will express their personality through the face mask they choose. Have her whip up a batch of those prior to fishing opener and she'll have a ready made market.

Thanks for sharing

I love that.
I think someone who would do the BWCA ot other outdoor scenes could make a little money. Nothing else help out the cause. It could be trend setting with fancy masks.

No, that is our new puppy Ember. I didn't realize he photobombed me until someone mentioned it in a earlier post.

Elsa will be 13 this July, she is pretty much living with Krista full time now like an old folks home. She gets walks every day, sometimes as long as 45 minutes, but her front and rear axels are both going, nearly blind due to cataracts and one eye and can hardly hear now. Last year was her last BW trip. I hope to get her back to the cabin one last time for old times, she loves it there. Going to be super tough to let her go, I can't hardly even think of it.

I ordered a couple of the bandanas (and some other stuff) from Tuscarora Outfitters. One is green and has a map of the BW and Quetico on it, the other is red and has all the lake names. They could easily be swen into proper masks. I hate wearing a mask and can't stand the elastic behind my ears, so the bandanas work well for me. At least I smile when I put on the map. I have frequently worn them in the past as a buff so it's more natural for me. I take a piece of blue shop towel and layer it between the folded bandana for better filtering and voila!

I have moved beyond the double layer with the black bandana now that it's warming up, but I actually liked the two-layer system when I was fishing in 40 degree weather!

I wonder how the bank robbery business is doing these days.

I asked the checkout person at Target the other day how it feels to be approached by a series of robbers all day. She didn't smile.

Since most bank lobbies are closed I'd imagine that business is slow ;)
