We took a drive over to Perham Minnesota to see our friend Jim. He is one of the Mountain Men, he is called the Silver Fox.
Friday was set up day so Jim had time to sit with us and talk. We met a number of his friends and learned all about the Rendezvous. We walked around and visited some of the vendors.
We bought some raisin bread, a cookbook and some treats for Chance.
We stopped by the Blacksmiths and admired the wares. In one of those other tents we bought some marbles and a gift for someone special.
Jim asked me to take some photographs of him and I was happy to oblige. We enjoyed our afternoon watching a long bow competition and participants coming and going.
This fellow told me “I live for these weekends, there isn’t anything better than a good shooting competition!”
Wonderful photos ! Looks like a fun day ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good weekend !
The Silver Fox looks like a very interesting person. You have some real characters in your world, that's for sure. :-)
I'll bet they have as much fun as small boys away at camp!
We are slowly getting some packing started, looks like you had a more fun day .
I'm glad Jim and his friends are keeping the Mountain Man history alive in your area. There's a group here, too, but I'm not sure how often they gather after the Rendezvous they host in June.
That looks like fun. At first it looked like the Civil War Reenactments they do in the South but I realized you wouldn't have that there. Glad they are keeping history alive.
Nice photo of the Silver Fox. That's great he does the mountain man reenactments.
That would be a fun outing:)
These people have fun recreating some of our history and talking about. They seem to be very enthusiastic about their interest.
It would be a fun adventure. I was at one of them at Grand Portage so many years ago. Your photos of Jim are really good. He should really like them.
Recreaters are just the coolest folk- we have a few around here..fun to watch.
Have a great weekend!
You don't have mountains in Minnesota do you? He needs to come down here...he would fit right in! LOL! But then it is probably lots cooler up there especially wearing all that paraphernalia. I haven't been to one of those fairs/old time "reenactment" festivals in a long , long time. Looks like it was a fun day and some great "goodies".
Looks like a fun day out.
Great picture - it looks very interesting.
Big boys and their toys! I guess it's a way they can still have fun and adventures in the woods even tho they are grown up. There was a rendezvous camp at our county fair every year and my kids loved visiting it.
Camp for adults, with real shootin'.
I wish we had more things like this here.
I would have been right at home.
Sounds like a fun day!
