    Default Stuck...

    Stuck at work, for a couple of more years..... Someone has to pay for all the stuff I keep buying and I can't get my wife to go get a job.... she says she's too busy working on 'lodge' stuff 8 to 10 hours a day.... Seems that still leaves her 8 hours to get a real job....

    Someday.....

    Default Traps!

    Well, the traps are hanging around the lodge, and off of the trappers cabin. The folks stopping in all summer really liked seeing them. Someone advised me that I shouldn't put them up, as I may offend certain clients with 'save every critter' mentality. I thought about it awhile, and decided I am who I am, and hung em up!

    I'd still rather see them out in the woods on a 50 mile trapline.....

    If you don't tell my wife what I said, I'll give you a free night at the lodge!

    Wow, thats a pretty good bribe! I think I can keep hushed for awhile. But you best make sure she's not around once I have my good nights rest at your place! (grin).....

    Im hoping we'll get up that way with the sleds this year. If nothing else we can harass you for using them as decoration!

    Default Oh Denalihunter!!

    Denalihunter....unlucky for you I did read that post. I agree with Huntress, those traps should be out and being used. So I will head up this weekend and get some lines out and use you as bait. That will stop all your complaints of traps not being set and having to work. Then I can make sure Huntress and the forum get some great photos to view.

    LOL! DS! Welcome! Good to know I didn't need to say a word.

    I'd be in heaven spending a few weeks up there! I'm itching to get things finished up around here but this snow is just hindering it ALL! .....But I'm not complaining, we have had enough snow in the last 5 hours we can now break out the sleds!
