The Country Ham Biscuit at Egg is my favorite! Psyched that you put it on there. I do have to confess that sometimes I get hashbrowns instead of the grits (even though i love them).

My father has one of those duffle bags...an ancient faded navy blue one with the green stripes and leather handles. It looks far more weather beaten than the ones in the picture, but it is undoubtedly the same.

Any idea who made/makes those?

james said...

tosh, those are old LL Bean duffles. Highly sought after. Get your hands on it if you can.

Any source on the jacket in the image above the fisherman? Is it a Filson "cruiser" jacket?

james said...

is indeed Filson. Source: an old Reference Library post...

Wonderful post. Would you mind sharing who makes the tan backpack with the straps? Thank you! Will

james said...

Will,
It's a S2W8 sunforger "Lewis & Clark" pack.
It's availability in the states, I don't know.
it can be ordered through Nepenthes I believe.
Thanks for visiting Secret Forts.

I feel like I should know this one but: what are the boots three-quarters of the way through? As always, great post, great site.

james said...

@Michael, Nike Hikers.

There must be something in the air. I pulled out my postcard of Wyeth's "Road to Friendship" just last week. I used to live about 20 miles from there, and this watercolor always evokes very complicated memories for me, particularly in late autumn, which tends to be wet and cold in Maine, and can be utterly miserable if you're not prepared one way or another.
