Sudden News

It is with sad news that I say goodby to an old Army Buddy and friend, a fellow Lover of the wilderness, at home with a paddle in his hand and a fire in his eye.

Please raise a glass of cheer to a special person, how passed 2 days after his Birthday, and a week after one of the best Canoe trips ever to be recorded and shared with everyone in FB  with the Northern Canadian Rangers and Troops along for special training.
Here is to Jim Melsom, a True Soldier, Army Buddy, fellow lover of all things wilderness,
Blessings to you and your family in this time of sudden remembrances, sudden thoughts and sudden emotions.
We were better for knowing you in so many ways Jim, take care as well as to his family !

  1. Jim is now exploring a new wilderness, which we can only dream about. May he paddle into eternity, as we all will one day.

    • Jim would have loved that comment, he would have loved your blog too. Wish I had shared it with him, sorry to both of you. Been busy again, wish I had sent him your link, he loved that north country as well.

  2. My condolences Wild E. on the loss of your buddy.

  3. Please accept my condolences. It’s never easy to lose someone ……. a kindred spirit.
