    We have a big issue here in Louisiana where once is deemed a wetland, you can no longer build there. It's pretty sad to see a lot of places where my grandpa told me I had family living there once, but because of the federal regulations those places are becoming ghost lands.

    Also if that statement didn't sound right I did have like four beers and I'm using the little microphone on my iPhone to write the sentences. Sometimes it doesn't recognize what I'm saying and try to correct it and It just don't come out right

    There's a chunk of undeveloped land nearby where we used to ride dirtbikes & ATVs until the road running along the side of the hill was widened and regraded. This prevented the rain from running downhill into a creek and turned the land into a giant mosquito-infested swamp. So we quit riding there.

    The owner of the property recently put the land up for sale and Ikea was interested in building there until the EPA stepped in to save the day declaring that these rich, evil developers were out to "destroy wetlands." A stinky swamp that didn't even exist 15 years ago and wouldn't exist if proper drainage had been budgeted into the road project in the first place.

    I'm now in one of the better neighborhoods and the last owner of my house paid $135,000 for it, then passed away. Nobody in her family wanted the place so they let the bank take it. Thanks to a botched winterizing job that destroyed a good bit of plumbing and drywall I offered $30,000 cash and the place was mine. Took a while to make it habitable, but it's a great place in a great 'hood. If I can get $100,000+ for it in the next few years I'll be very happy.

    I have finally found a worthy replacement for my old beater van!

    First thing I did was remove the bulkhead. Those running boards will also go as well when I install the trailer hitch. Cloth seats so I'll need seat covers before taking the dogs out to get wet & muddy. I will also add an interior liner over foam insulation when the weather starts getting cold. Too many windows, but I no longer live in the ghetto so I'll just get the back windows tinted and put in a set of blackout curtains.

    My Sister has a beautiful piece of terraced property above the Mckenzie River here in Oregon.

    She had a pond built on the lowest terrace some years ago. The water has to be piped and pumped in by her for it to exist.

    Recently She wanted to build a guest cottage next to the pond.
    She was denied the building permit as a county aerial survey had marked it as "Wet lands". The county refuses to rezone it.

    I told her to drain the pond, let it set for a couple of years and have the county revisit the issue, Build her cottage then fill the pond again.

    Re: Post Race!

    Spent the last two weeks counting bears....I mean salmon. Bad berry harvest, so the bears were sucking down our salmon carcasses before we could get DNA from them. Getting DNA from them once they were in the bears was a bit more problematic.

    However, I did find out one thing: When you are sitting in camp a few dozen miles out in the wilderness and a line of fire fighters shows up...it's rarely a good thing.

    I've seen photos of you with a beard. You could comfortably sidle your way right up to a bear without him thinking you were out of place. He'd probably introduce you to his sister.

    Yeah, it means there's a Hen Party nearby and they get noisy at night.

    Ouch! That would explain an event from the walk in. I stepped over a stream, then the gal just behind me stepped over the stream and a bear scooted up the hill away from her. It didn't scoot when I crossed the stream, though I must have been only a couple meters away from it.

    You know, there's times I'd love to live in the US where you've got wide open stretches of wilderness to gallivant in.

    Yesterday I startled a cat.

    Shaggy: You are not unbearable.

    Funky: The wilds are not necessarily gallivant friendly.
    The woods around here are very thick with underbrush, mud, sticks, stones, and bear poop. Animal and insect wildlife abounds.




    The only places I know where you can skip along carefree are the national and state parks. We do have a lot of wide white sand beaches though.

    Yeah, but some of his puns are just bear faced cheek.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd probably hate the reality. I just want to be able to tell more interesting stories.

    When I go hiking, I prefer to take only the bear essentials: Food and a place to sleep. I've learned a bit about them over the years, though, such as the fact that they are generally bothered by the insects found in the woods. I know what makes them tick, and what makes them flea. In fact, I could give a tick talk, but only on the clock.

    I saw some other interesting animals while doing that. I believe I mentioned it before, in which case you can consider that it bears repeating. Though bear in mind that it barely bears repeating bears.

    I ate a berry or two, but they were barely present, which is why the bears were present. The lack of bears appears to have driven the bears to hunt for salmon more aggressively. It's hard to bear, seeing them barely getting by like that. If we get a good berry year next year, and don't see so many bears, I would say that it bears out my theory.
