Re: Bell on a Bicycle

Where bikes may be present, I keep my ears open and give way at the earliest opportunity, which is nearly always immediately. Once in a great while I encounter a knucklehead who would have run me down if I hadn't heard him first (it's never been a woman yet). They're usually the kind of people who g...

Re: Trees near Charlebois

"Nobody" really goes up into the areas up above the pools, so probably available (cannot guarantee). Deep shed area no fire in a really long while. I'd personally risk it. I've been back all the way behind the jungle into the bare rock. The jungle is interesting and offers hanging options, but the ...

It might be accurate in degree-days, though.

Re: Mindless chit chat

After over a foot of snow last week, we're expecting 2-4" of rain on Christmas, with wind gusting at 65-70 mph. I'll be happy as long as it's not snow. That much moisture falling as snow would take days for me to clear.

That's the best current available I've seen. I'm pretty sure that the two I usually carry are long out-of-print. I prefer them because the scale is not so zoomed out.

Re: Mindless chit chat

18"-24" of snow are expected in NJ tonight and tomorrow, and winds will get up to 60 mph on the back side of the storm.. Only about 6" so far.

Wow, that's an incredible dry spell! I experienced a couple summer rainstorms in Yuma over the years. It's hard to imagine them missing those badly needed precipitation events.

Re: Mindless chit chat

Today we got the first sticking snow of the season in NJ. It's only been an inch so far, and we had a bigger snowfall in mid-October, but this one will last on the ground for a few days.

Re: I was waiting for Aliens--- They're here!

Apparently the structure has already been removed, but nobody has owned up to the removal yet. It wasn't me. However, when I saw where it was, I had to laugh at its location being described as "remote". The last couple miles look like tough going, but 191 is the most heavily-traveled road in that p...

Re: I was waiting for Aliens--- They're here!

I've been past that area on 191 a few times in the last 5-6 years. It looks about 10 miles east of the road. I didn't suspect its presence or see any aliens, though.

Now that you mention it I didn't catch the part about charging boaters. Kind of like a bovinopotamus bloviating toward the African Queen. Youtubeable.
What kind of fly do swimming cattle go for at this time of year?
