    Holy crap I don't know... I bet when the flies fire up in July or August or whatever, it gets kind of rough... Extreme...

    Years ago I watched the first couple seasons of Ice Road truckers on TV and I wanted to move to Yellowknife and become an ice road trucker - then I met Ivan and Frank and they cured me of my "I wanna be a trucker" delusion.

    Take this personally, you would die up there. It is a hard life, I know this, I left that place as a kid to get the fuck out.

    My PSA for the month. Remember to always put caps in or the proper wire clamp into the knock outs of your breaker panel.

    Went to wire up an outlet for my shiny new air compressor and found this mess inside my 100 amp panel. Seems I left a cap loose when I was in it last.

    Yep I found an open in mine and couldn't believe it had not been inhabited... Got lucky with that one. Had other rodent super-highways left behind from plumbers who rough out with a hole saw about twice the necessary size...

    My shop is nothing more than a framework of lumber and metal siding screwed to it. Those little fuckers are in every damn thing in there. I have a little shed outside of it and they are in that damn thing as well. I'm buying a shit ton of traps and poison tomorrow tomorrow. 2 of the little bastards made the mistake of migrating to the inside of the warm house and the cats turned them into chew toys.

    Is that a hooker from Alaska?

    338 Lapua are too expensive to shoot for my blood.
    Surprisingly, I have been having the most fun with the little 223 shooting at 500 yds lately.
    You're gonna need 1000 yds and more to have any fun with that beast.
    We should go shoot with Kovatch, he shoots his 50 cal from the other mountain to the range on rt 54. That's pretty cool shit right there.

    Yea- I was figuring that "hoar ice" was a nickname for this Eskimo Hooker that used to work the Truck Stop in Carlisle there off I81. I think that was her name- she worked there in the Mid 90's.

    I was expecting to see some hoar ice form on my porch near where there is a direct vent outlet from heater. Hoar ice will only form where there is a moisture source.

    It looks just like cobwebs made of ice... First time I saw it didn't know what the heck...
