MACKINAW MEMORIES: My Borrowed Mack Cruiser Morning By Cheryl A. Raywood

Posted August 24, 2012
· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

Adirondack end of summer mornings can be cold and damp, especially before 10 am., so borrowing my daughter’s Macinaw was a necessity. Moving back and forth between the creek bank and the small barn to relocate her woodpile where it would be safe from spring flooding, it kept me comfortably warm as well as dry. This jacket, now 25 years…

I moved to NY about 30 years ago and ended up living with a guy that had a large piece of property and a wood stove. I noticed this wonderful red plaid jacket in the closet and asked whose it was. He said he doesn’t remember who had it originally, but it was his now and he’d had it about…

1. Practice As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. Above all other tips, just get out and shoot in the pre-season.

I was 17 years old when I bought my red/black Mackinaw Cruiser at the Portland Outdoor Store in 1973. I had just moved to Portland, and the coat served me well that year.
