    Last I saw of him, he and his better half where finishing up an awesome sushi meal, having some fine homemade mead, and discussing the well laid plans for a governmental regime coup....


    Ok.....I lied...


    ...The mead wasn't THAT fine.....

    As a trapper you know never to drink what yellow and in a jar from another trapper. That mead was mark's favorite beaver castor. .....

    Guys, had a family emergency earlier in the winter, had to fly down to SoCal to help take care of my mom. So I haven't been posting. Finally back home, and after the L.A. freeway scene, the incredible masses of humanity down there, the fact that I was beginning to curse out other drivers <grin> ... it's pretty awesome to be back home in the middle of the middle of nowhere.

    Enjoyed being at BOG meeting and meeting new folks, making new friends, and (unfortunately) possibly making new enemies. But dang it someone had to say it <grin>.

    And I don't remember any mead, Mike ... I think I was probably drinking something stronger, and Dave can back me up on that I'm sure!

    Oh, the marten enjoyed our absence btw. Who knew the damage a pack of marten could do. Or the fear they would strike into a couple as they slept at night, creeping upstairs, growling, demanding we give them "their" bed back. They left no shelf or nook and cranny unturned. It actually seemed worse than when a bear gets into a cabin. Was a bit spooky getting back home, seeing porch window broken, peering inside. Wasn't really sure if a wolverine or bear was living in there, weapons were all inside ... grabbed the .41 revolver and stumbled into main room over all manner of things over the floor, buckets, tools, chainsaw ... and you should have seen me jump when the first marten came out a growling. Little critters but they can be quite scary. Especially when they all think they own the place. Still cleaning up. They even did something else unusual. They got into the sauna, nibbled away the soap in there, didn't touch much else but laid down a near perfect line of poop all along in front of the sauna bench where you stand. Like some purposeful signal of some kind? hehe

    Had to DLP a big black bear boar before. But never a marten. Really don't know which one scared me more!
