Reconecting With My Grandfather

Growing up my grandfather was my idol. He was a true outdoorsman. He hunted, fished, hiked, and always had Fords. I recently bought my first truck, a 2011 Explorer, and its allowed me to start being an outdoorsman like he was and reconnected me with a part of my childhood I’ve always cherished. If he were still here, he’d be proud that I’m using his favorite reel, target shooting with his favorite rifle, and driving a Ford truck.
