#355831 A little snowshoeing fun

Posted by glenway on 22 February 2021 - 03:42 AM

Who broke the trail, Pokey?  Being a leader is not all it's cracked up to be.

 

A fond memory comes to mind. 

 

On snowshoes, I would hunt the elusive snowshoe hare in Montmorency County with a Ruger Mark II .22 pistol.  I could take my time among the cedars in the low ground and look for the ghosts sitting still; they were good at hiding in plain sight.  But, those big, black eyes gave them away at times.  Took my largest Booner hare with a head shot.  Didn't weight it, but I'd say it was close to 5 pounds.  Wish they were around here in the Lower Peninsula, but most are now gone except for the U.P.

 

Easy to get tripped-up in there but there was always a spooky thrill sneaking around below the wind.  The .410 Contender was a better option than a long gun in there, too.

Good trick with the hides.

34 degrees at wake-up.  Yippee!  The melt is on.

Hiked out to a couple of feeding sites today and got a good workout.  About 3/4 mile with a pack was enough.  Baffin boots and old-school snowshoes (Kabik, Canada made).

Things (and humans) change.  I was the kid who got kicked out of kindergarten for "teaching" some kid about manners.

 

Officials brought me back and put me in another classroom.  Nobody ever bothered me anymore.

I might need them to get to the garage today, anyway.  Oh, I forgot; they're in the garage.

Good stuff, Pokey.  The young lady is bundled up real good.  You gave her a good time she'll remember.  Looks like a good set up with the floor in the shanty.

 

I have some cross country skis you can have.  I can measure the width of them, if you wish.  They may be wider than those you have. Maybe they can be used in tandem with what you have.




#355617 Affordable Energy

Posted by glenway on 13 February 2021 - 03:39 AM

I'm in, too. 

 

I was so thrilled when we learned that we no longer needed OPEC's control over oil and am now disgusted with our leadership.

 

It's no longer about making sense or logic; it's about a fight not only for energy independence, but about our way of life.  And, we are losing the battle, while those in power are building their strength daily with people who care nothing about America.

If it were easy, you'd have more competition.  Hope the paycheck will make up for the extra effort.

We all should be the wiser by now.  Good time to unload stockpiles.  Bullwinkle and I will be cashing in before Beto comes a callin'.  UPS makes it easy to ship legally.

 

Took a look at the local CheapMart and found a single box of 12-gauge 8 shot.  That was the entire inventory, too, Kiyote.

Whenever ol' Joe moves his lips, another firearms sales record is reached.  Talk may be cheap but ammo sure isn't.
