Keeping busy. Been working a lot of overtime. Our crew is small and work is piling up.

I haven't been riding as much. This is the time of year that I get reacquainted with my Jeep. If and when it gets above 25 I'll ride, but my gear gets too bulky and cumbersome to wear at anything below. Either that or freeze my butt off.

I'm too cheap to pay for overpriced heating gear and its nice not having to take off/put on 3-4 layers every time I go somewhere.

I hope to get to a swill soon.

Given a choice, it seems that most of us tend to choose the most dangerous method of travel
Do you sit in the very back of the airplane? You SHOULD! Ever hear of a plane backing into a mountain?

well I have a critter under the house! I have mouse traps and rat traps set..it's been a few weeks since I last caught a mouse.

So I decided to make up one of those 5 gal bucket traps. That didnt work as what ever was down there was licking the bait can CLEAN! So I thought it had to be bigger than a mouse, so I made the same trap out of a feed tub..only to have the bait can licked clean again..wtf?

so I borrowed a neighbors game cam..I know what it is now.

Thanks guys. That looks pretty good. I'll definitely check it out. I got a friend that lives a few miles South of there. Looks like a good place for us to go and shoot.

took a boat back in there, and dropped a buddy off out there years ago, back in blackburn cove, came back that evening to pick him up, he had a wild turkey he had taken with a bow.

well , and he had a bunch of ticks and chiggers too, but I was only impressed by the turkey.

ive ridden/explored back in there a bit on bike, it is an area im planning on exploring further this coming year.

its the rectangular concrete looking thing on the right side of this map/pic

You missed a modification of the 5 gal trap. He put a stop (bend) in the wire across the bucket so the can stays in the middle. Now that your critter knows what it tastes like, he won't resist, and he'll jump to the spinning can and drop in unharmed.
Then, bring him to Matt's place to keep mini-Mouth's wall squirrel company.

I made my bucket trap simple.:5 gal bucket ramp leading up to it. hand full of dog food....caught about 20 of them so far with it. Ive also done the old warner bros box proped with a stick tied by a string to a mouse trap nailed to the floor under the box... this worked real well when one of my rats got loose. the trap is too small to hurt the rat but pulled the stick to drop the box....learning from cartoons once again

ok..I did the bend in the wire mod..slather'd up the can agn and set the game cam..I also baited the big ass rat trap which is teather'd to a chain so we will see which one catches that "Dirty RAT!"

started wondering if any section of the Ozark highlands trail would be ridable...I just did a search and noticed it may not be such a good Idea to even try to find

Looks like Chuckles is "in" for Jury duty still. Turns out another buddy (Ricky, who Doc and others met) was also called in for the same duty. Of course, Chuck and Ricky have ridden together before, maybe they aren't on duty at all and are just "riding"?
