Wisconsin: “Boat” Chores and Bows

Updated: Aug 8, 2020

So I figured out water and sewer and pumping out. The Pryde will sail on, cleaned and refreshed. And I’ll sail in her, refreshed myself after an awesome archery session at Buck Rub Outfitters in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. Buck Rub looks like a north-woods cabin and features a pretty darn cool indoor 3-D range (basically, a series of foam-animal and “regular” targets, for shots up to 40 yards, to simulate a forest—with a pond and everything) and very friendly staff.... Because in the pile of gear Libby holds, one can find scuba equipment, the infamous inflatable star for floating on bodies of water, and my old Olympic-style recurve bow.

Zen in the Art of Archery, anyone? Eugene Herrigel’s 1948 work on philosophy and Japanese Kyudo archery.... As a kid, I shot a lot, and I still fall back on the sport for fun and meditation. And after a week of driving, those adventures through America’s breadbasket, and that little almost-heartbreak over pumping out in Madison, I was ready for some arrow flinging.

Read Local, L.L.C., is a small (we hope to grow!) community of book lovers. We review books published by independent/university/small presses and post our reviews and thoughts in an effort to raise awareness of independent-press books. The Read Local, L.L.C., entity is owned by the parent company of Stoneman House Press, L.L.C., and that publisher's work appears on this website (we make money when Stoneman House sells books), but not everyone who writes content for us or participates in our community works for Stoneman House. Aside from Stoneman House, we also have relationships (personal and/or professional) with some of the authors whose books appear here. Some (like Sage Webb) write reviews for us and help lead us (and they make money when their books sell). We note when we have a relationship with a book, publisher, or author. Otherwise, we do not have relationships with the authors and publishers listed here. They appear here only because we liked their books and we like reviewing books. (We will be as transparent as possible when we post here about things in which we have a financial stake. Not just because of regulations like those in Part 255 of Title 16 of the Code of Federal Regulations, but because we really are here just to have some literary fun.) If you are an author or publisher of a book that appears here, feel free to reach out to us! We'd love to hear from you. We are at readlocalbooks@hotmail.com. And if you are an author or publisher and you would like us to remove your book from our site, just let us know. We are here to serve the literary community. If you have questions, reach out.

(We also love innovative art and photography. Just sayin'.)
