    Canadian Bison and Bear

    Just did a road trip to Seattle, then over to Idaho before heading back north. Going down we saw 23 bears in 3 days. It was impressive as they were all right on the edge of the road. 3 or 4 were grizzlies. That fresh spring grass was pretty tasty. We also saw about 40 bison right on the road...

    Had a positive interaction with Beretta recently. I had shipped a pretty expensive jacket to my brother. I sent it to a secure building and the front desk signed for it. My brother never received it. To file a claim I needed some shipping information and requested such from Beretta. They...

    Alaskan down in Yellowstone

    Another Alaskan pilot down. My cabin next door neighbor was flying from Beluga to Boise in his Cherokee 180. They went down in the park, apparently. I haven't heard any more details than his son and him are banged up, but alive. Jim might have a couple of broken ribs. It happened right after a...

    Is there a meat locker any where near Anchorage? A place to rent a cold locker for meat storage. Ran out of fish last winter and kinda loaded up this summer. Might need a place to keep some red meat. }:>

    Old contraption

    Found this in the woods. Some kind of old homemade gold dredge. It uses an external power source connected by a belt. We cleaned the brush around it and snapped a few pictures. Always cool to find this stuff. Curious as to how they manipulated it. Or did they feed into it. Did they leave any...

    Bill deformity

    We see a lot of chickadees with strange bills. I have never seen a nuthatch with a deformed bill. This thing is as long as the bird. He has a hard time picking seeds up. Hope he makes the winter! Really hope whatever causes this in chickadees hasn't passed to the nuthatches.

    Splash down. Alone again, naturally.

    I won't use the brain shot on moving targets. I just wish they always stopped where they were when I pulled the trigger.

    Chimney leaking inside the cabin

    My 6" stovepipe has started leaking. Never leaked for 15 years, then I moved the cabin. It is dripping on the top of the stove and running onto the floor. Went up and everything looks good. Am I supposed to seal any of the joints above the roofline? The only one I can think of is the conical...

    How many hours can I expect

    My marine mechanic tells me it is time to repower the 24' SeaSport. It has the 5.7 Volvo gas engine with 1500 hours on it. That doesn't seem like all that many hours. He doesn't tell me an exact reason, just that the time is nigh. . . . ...

    My old friend Teddy comes calling

    3-4 years ago Teddy was a first year calf. I let him hang around all winter, eating the jack o lanterns and garden refuse. Now he comes to his name when he is passing by. He has a very soft nose, but watch those horns when he turns his head. Major head bang! There are currently 3 adult moose...

    Artichoke, Rose help

    I am growing a couple of artichokes. They had a tough summer with aphids and spider mites. Never did grow chokes. One that I had set outside in isolation appeared to either die or go dormant. He went into the garage, cool and dark. The other stayed in the greenhouse. The one in the garage has...
