Getting good, Jeff? [Roll Eyes] [Big Grin]

This li'l gal got more spunk that 90% of the guys I try to hunt with...! They'd never do this, and they sure don't have the poet's soul and artists' eye that Killy does...

Thanks, Gal. This is a neat way to head into christmas...feel like every post from ya is another present under the tree to unwrap!

Wow! I just caught up on this one, I was about 5 pages behind. Great story telling Ma'am, I'm loving every bit of it. You're analogy using the pic of Spirit to describe how you feel carrying your Dakota was great. I can't wait for more (but I will ifn I hafta!).

Hey Killy and others, especially and doctors. Just read that part where you mentioned you were so cold when you started moving you got colder. I was always taught that when you get to that point (you had a good shiver session for a while then unexpectedly warm up) you are stressing your body greatly. Getting up and moving aggressively to try and warm up can finish you off. Any docs here chime in and verify or old wives tale???

It changed.
Teale's book on Fabre led me deep into the night, while the wind picked up its skirts and began its fierce charge on the highlands. It changed the rain to snow in the wee hours, and come morning it is still blowing with powerful gusts, and snowing lightly. It builds upon the fly and sloughs off with a sigh as the tent warms or gravity takes its natural tithe.

I am not hunting in it. Three trucks arrive at roughly 9:30, which proves me to be a sloth. Meanwhile, after trading liquids and munching some supremely junky food, I dry the mattress and continue my book. I wish the book went on forever. Yes, miniscule mores and habits of European insects are the focus. Interspersed, however, are glimpses of rustic life in a time gone by (Fabre was born in 1823 and died in 1915), philosophical observations that are timeless, details that are uncanny in their depth, and new words and Latin phrases to learn the meanings of.

Another truck at 9:55. It's Duffy.

More water on top of the tent. I reassess. I believe it is on top of the fly, in the triangular space between the three main frame poles. I pushed it off. Duffy is perusing likely spots to park his tin can.

He sets up his metal door wedge (he has an Aliner) and I wander up. Hey! Techno-Man!

 -

We went for a walk around the beaver ponds, lovely in the snow. That's where the pic of me and the Dakota in front of the snowy meadow was taken. It started snowing pretty good while we were out.
Here is Duffy behind the ponds.

 -

When we got back, Bart had arrived and set his tent up. We sat up and talked for a bit, but the two travellers had had a busy day, Duffy's trip was about four hours, and Bart's was twice that. We turned in and slept like rocks.

Careful, Doc, or I will drag you out of that overinsulated office by your ears! You prolly got nice nails, dry socks, time for lunch and everything !

Bart got out early to hunt. He is losing his voice, which reminds me that last year he managed to gift me with his son's cold. I carefully check myself for changes in snot production over the course of the next week and a half. I went up to my Ray Charles trail, as it seemed the place to go. The snow had finally stopped, and a set of tracks had recently gone through the site, about 30 yards uphill. I decided to take down the flagging I had used. Gun season was coming, and there was no good to be had in leaving it up.

More tracks, lots of them underneath the flagging tape. Drat. I never saw a deer, but in the back of my head I was concocting a cockamamie plan for "baiting" a site with yards of fluorescent orangey-pink tape. It got dark and I came in. Bart had made a backstrap stew, and we toasted a hearty bread to go with it, using the pregnant lady. We ate like kings.
