    Old Hidden Gun Club

    The snare I found way back when had been baited, which was illegal. It almost killed my dog at the time. I've seen several ruins with pipes in the ground like that - I think they're for underground fuel storage. Most likely heating oil.

    That's just clip art I found. This is my cat, Kodak. He's a British Shorthair.

    Climate change in Pine Barrens

    Can we not be dicks in here? I know it's the internet of 2019 and all, but we've had a pretty good track record of not going off the rails. Otherwise this goes to the slag heap, Santa kicks a kitten, and everyone gets coal in their stockings.

    Yes it is. I can hardly believe how much heavier I was back then, and how much hair I still had. :/

    A Fine Time For Fine Wine

    I'm just going to do a batch of Sauvignon Blanc so I'll need to do their California juice. Depending on how this goes I might get Pinot Grigio next year.

    A Fine Time For Fine Wine

    Update: I've ordered all of the stuff I need to do it and now it just needs to show up and I just need to get the grape juice! I think I may also try my hand at cider, too.

    Deep Hollow Campground

I had exported that picture earlier and it got lumped in with the ones I uploaded to this post. It's amazing to see how much better 1800 year old ruins In England do than...
