One of the most popular outdoors-related activities during the winter months is attending one of the many sport shows that are held nearly every weekend. Some of the shows are focused on a particular audience, such as fly fishermen; other shows are much more general and varied. One of the biggest and best is the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pa. This year the show will be held Feb. 3-11. This show has just about anything related to outdoors recreations and, in addition to the various manufacturers that attend, also features events with a lot of spectator appeal such as turkey, duck, goose and elk calling contests.

After all, who had time to finish every word of every college or high school reading assignment? Even the purists among us might admit that the little yellow-and-black-striped books were handy for review. What's that you say? You pull them out every once in a while to help your kids with their homework?

But then, there's the approach Nate Naylor takes when he travels in the same circles as his father Kevin. Nate follows the path Kevin has left behind, and rubs it out along the way. That's the kind of relationship the Naylors have. They are father and son, and colleagues who work in the same profession.
