That is perty, which side of the continental divide are you on? From what I hear Lake Meade should benefit from this last winter.

Oh yeah, Iím strictly a bowhunter nowadays. I hunt Elk, Bear, deer, turkey etc, if Iím around for the season. I took an elk three years ago with the bow, he stood 63 yards broadside, never knew I was there. He trotted maybe 40 yards and fell, but was 4 miles from camp and another 3 from my vehicle. It was a crap ton work but worth every drop of sweat!

Mark, Iím on the East side. The Mountains in places are 1000% of average snow pack for this time of year.

Know horses? I've done that carrying bit but now use horses for that work. I'm just to old for putting meat on my back and walking miles out several times. Have a soft bag I leave on the horse above the saddle bags. Couple guys over the years shot Moose where we've used four horses for one animal. And that was leaving the hide and ribs behind. Wasn't mine, I could never do that with only one for life time shoot. Boy is that meat good. I've never drawn that tag and won't even send for it anymore. Was to much for out of state tag. I've never got into bowhunting but all my friends have. I guess I have to many hobbies.

ĎHey Chet,
Iíve been around horses not sure Iíd go as far as saying I know them. Horses would definitely make all things easier but I donít really have access to a real pack horse. A buddy has a large ATV but Iím not a fan of their noise, smell etc when hunting. I currently have 2 moose points in Colorado, three is the magic number for seriously being considered for drawing a tag. Moose like Bighorn sheep is a 1 tag per lifetime draw, so if I ever get that coveted letter I may hire an outfitter with horses to increase my odds. My body has seen a rough life and I push it harder than most, hopefully I draw those tags before I get too beat up.

Moose is a special hunt. Don't want to waste that tag if drawn. We usually see them every year in Idaho where we've been going. Years back there was an albino in the hills where are camp was. The local Idaho guys new it was there and asked us if we've seen it. We told them where it went but they wouldn't get out of there vehicle to walk the mountains. So don't know if it was taken or not. Love those trips, but it's been a while now. My body to has gone thru a lot to. God bless,

Chet

Oh man, been there when I lived in Wellington. Was working on my horse trailer that morning, 65*....dropped to about 25* and snowed 2 feet within 6-8 hours. I was not happy LOL. I moved about a month later.

I literally canNOT imagine living with snowfalls during SUMMER months! That's just CRAZY!

On another note, I'm finally settled in my job search efforts. Don't have to leave where I am, but it's time for a change. I have offers in both Tucker, GA and upper-mid SC (south of Charlotte, NC). The offer in GA is severely lacking on relo expense coverage, and would simply be a lateral move to keep doing the same thing I've been doing here in Birmingham for the last 14 years, so I'm taking the other offer and will be moving to the south side of Charlotte in the coming weeks. We have actually already found a home, and hope it stays on the market long enough for me to get the official offer letter from the new company (run by a long-term personal friend of mine) so we can get pre-approved and make an offer. We're fortunate to not have to get our home here sold before we buy there, but I sure hope we don;t end up with too long of a time in paying two mortgages.

NOW, I've got to get off my rump and get my ball joints, injector shims, and injector o-rings done really quickly while also trying to get the house ready to market, and then.... as it usually happens, found out my mom is getting a pacemaker installed this Friday, so I will have to spend the following weekend (of 4th) visiting here while my sister is out of town -- have to make sure she doesn't do something stubborn like getting behind the wheel!

F250_ Welcome to my neck of the woods!

That location will put you close to the mountains, the beach, the city, the country and just about anything else you or your family wishes to see or do. Keep us updated, good luck on your move and stay safe!

Also, if you are headed up I-85 when you move, when you go by "Dad's Restaurant" at exit 177 in GA, give us a wave!

Thanks, Sous. We do go the I-85 route, and will gladly give you wave when we drive by. I did think of you yesterday as we were driving past the lake on the way back, but just didn't have the exit reference in mind. Lord willing, we're actually going to be on the NC side of the border, but only about 30 minutes from the plant. I just got a text from the HR manager a short while ago, and we will be nailing down the salary figure right after lunch today. Once I get the official letter in my hands, we'll proceed with an offer on the house we found.

I got tied up building a new home office. Wife decided she wanted to be home all the time so we need more space. Debating whether or not to install Pella windows and doors in it. Great quality, but the cost is monkey-with-a-football level of stupid. Don't know if I want to deal with cheaper quality though, long term.

And our wind here is 60 mph almost every day, so my fence blew down, added that to the list.
With all the rain lately the weeds are growing like...well...weeds...so lots of upkeep on vines, weeds, tree trimming, etc.

Dang English ivy reached the soffits again so when you pull them off they leave marks - now I need to paint.

House may be in constant disarray, but my truck is running like a top so a hearty "Take that" to the world in general.
