    nice pictures, but does the place ever dry out?

    saving the truck from being swallowed by mud doesn't seem much like fun. :confused:

    The place does dry out. Just that this is the time of year for the rains. It took LTS and I two days to jack up the truck onto blocks and then get it out. Of course that meant jacking and drinking jack to get it out, but ole LTS came through with his mechanical genius and know how. My savior! I just didn't judge the start of the bog well and that is what got it stuck. At least he made me stop before I buried it up to the axles!

    Glad y'all like the pictures.

    Taking preventative measures to keep the truck from being swallowed may not be that much fun, but i assure you its even less fun if you don't.......

    I've seen things so stuck in the mud that it took a backhoe to literally "dig" them out......."when" the backhoe could even reach it.... :mad:

    Yup Bill, we kill and eat 'em. Shame you never had any of the squirrel stew we have eaten. You have never tasted something so good. I would never be embarrassed to admit I eat tree rats. You yankee's have no idea what your missing! Better yet, just stick to your quarter pounders and whoppers. I'll take squirrel stew any day!

    Bill, you're obviously referring to the basic Northern squirrel... a meek and mild creature indeed. ;) The Southern squirrel, on the other hand ... well, let's just say it's a whole other story ... :D

    I have one very fine daughter that would kill for either some good squirrel stew or, better yet, some fried squirrel. She says it's like filet mignon compared to fried rabbit or rabbit stew.

    Our Tree Rats are BIG, JUICY, succulent and oh, SOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOD!!

    Don't knock it until you've tried it.

    Edited after your next post: There're also very crafty and hard to catch. One has to be very, very good to even get one for the pot.....

    In case you wondered, I was born in Hartford and brought up on Mt. Dessert Island near Bass Harbor!!

    I cut my teeth hunting up north until I moved south after college a hundred years ago!

    IPT, nice pics of the camp. If ya get to burried to bad up there give me a holler I got a few 4x's that'll yank ya out. w/out charge like the quacks next to us get I told ya bout. LTS on jackin and blockin does do the trick. but that lil factory screw jack had to make it fun. figured he'd have a tracktor jack "hi-lift" there at camp for back-up?

    Crp, I figured you could tell by looking his truck is 2wd, easiest way look at his front wheel in the pic you can see it hasn't spun by the mud mark on his tire. Where the rear you can see it spun :D

    TQH, thanks a million, my friend. Will most certainly call ya.


    Well, Mr Bill37W, I too was born and raised in New York and went to school in Michigan. I finally got tired of the North after returning from my tour in the RVN in 1972. While completeing my obligation to my country, 1967 - 1972, I learned about living in many of our fine Southern states. I decided to move to Arizona in 1976 with the company I worked for then. I have only been back North once since then for a four year stint in MA from 1990-94 when I again moved back to TX. I enjoy the South and its many enjoyments and would never again move North. No offence, but I do like the refinements of Southern living. Now, since your squirrels and other rodents aparently are not to your liking, the ones down South here, are to mine. I especially like squirrel, peccary, rabbit and many other fine southern delicacy's. Too bad you have not experienced such fine quisine!

    I only hunt what I eat, nothing more. What pray tell, do you hunt and eat?

    Show's how little your friend knows. However, I, and my wife, did live in a trailer for three months once, until base housing opened up and we could move into it. Was at Cherry Point, NC. This will give you enough information to find out what branch of the service I served in and to also give you information that this was the first state I learned how to hunt tree squirrels. I learned from my platoon Sgt. who was from Texas! Being that I was learning to live with the good Southern people that I was surrounded with, I learned to like this way of life and am now part of it! Shame your friend was so narrow minded!

    Hey, IPT, LTS next time ya'll head out there, take a come-a long and chains. easier to tie up to a tree and pull it out than jack it up. we use to live by'em when I was in high school.( we'd go muddin out in the boonies and who ever had the winch always ended 2 to3 trucks back behind the one that was stuck. we was in a tight single file line. so out with the chains and come-a-long)
    As for eatin tree rats: They must be somethin to it. Audy Murphy grew up on 'em and my friend and mentor Carlos (also went by White Feather) ate 'em regularly, myself included. To each his own, but no need to put other Americans down for being different. save that for the Frog Eaters.
