    Stopped off at the club on the way home from a doctor apt. and did a quick 77 rounds for some gun exercise. The mosquitoes were unbelievable and this is before 11:00 am, we've gotten a lot of rain this spring, a few times heavy but mostly light drizzle every day just about for the last couple of weeks or so.

    Anyway still running good.

    Muy Bueno. Glad youf gun worked well. Skeeters afound hefe wefe not bad causer we got rain when it was cold. We were also at the tail end of all those storms that went through the central states. Most of the storms only got half way through Texas. We werwe roo far south. Don't mind the skeeter shortage at all.

    Where are you at quirky? Sounds like south Texas to me!

    Howdy Paul, I left S. Texas 11 years ago and moved to the North East. And in a couple weeks I'm moving further up State, around 7-10 miles from the Canadian border. (16 miles from the official crossing) Up to the North Woods as some would call it, population less than a 1000.

    One thing I forgot to mention is we got the ticks bad out here and it's every year. The club sprays every April for them.

    Anyway, trying to get ready for the move as I'm going to try it with one load. It's a hell of a drive up there with about 80 odd miles of a one lane roadway in both directions. (178 to 182 miles total) Don't want to be caught on it when it gets dark because you can't see shit up there.

    And at sunset or day break the moose are everywhere and you hit one of them you'll know it. That picture above is my car.

    I moved from the northeast 16 years ago to south Texas! I don't miss the snow but I do miss cold weather hunting! Sounds like you're in Maine or New Hampshire ?

    I hear ya, we get hammered up there with snow, I thought it was bad where I'm at now but up where I'm going we get over 2x the snow 108 inches on average.

    I just bought my little car a month and a half ago (2016 used) it's rear wheel drive, I'll have to learn how to drive in the snow again with rear wheel drive . I'm going all four tires studded as we can run them from October to April. The good thing is unlike my rear drive p/up many years ago the engine is rear mounted right over the axle and of course all the new safety tech and stuff.

    I wanted to get out from where I'm at because it's becoming a rat race down here and if the socialist commies take over next year or even a few years later I think all hell is going to break lose and you don't want to be stuck in the middle of the low-lives. Especially if the grid goes down and or possible food shortages. Not to say it would not happen up there but my place up there would be easier to defend, I'm a sitting duck where I'm at now.

    Once I get settled in up there I'm buying me a shotgun.

    I wanted to go rural west, but I'm on limited funds and being hobbled up and somewhat scared I could get into a place soon enough. I'd have to try long distance so I didn't blow all my savings at motels.

    So where I'm heading to is the next best thing for me. And it was all set-up for me. I just got to get up there. A little nervous but once I get the hang of things and get through my first winter I'll be good. I'll stock up on food like I've always done in late fall in case I can't get out for days or weeks. One time down here it snow so bad I could not open the front door.

    Quirky you can have that snow and cold. Granted if SHTF happens you will probably be much better up where most will not even think about going. You might not even have a 5G tower near you to microwave your butt. I have one two streets down from me so if I want to cook dinner I can just set the food out in the back yard.LOL
    I thought you still lived in TX.

    I was down there for over 9 years, had moved down there from the mid-west 20 years ago this year in fact. It was a rude awaking for me anyway. :) Texas is like Cali nowadays, 1/2 the population is from somewhere else it seems. Most I think because of the heavy military presents there. They get discharged down there and decide to stay or they come back to it. Cali was like that years ago as well cause they have a fairly good military presents there as well.

    But the last several decades those going out to Cali are just heading that way, some believing the hype. I know I did when I moved out there in the 1970's, took over 15 years to figure out it was a police State disguised by good weather. o_O

    Anyway as I have mention before I've lived all over this country and not just as a transient.
    I think I'm done though, I might have a window of 3-5 more years to make a big move somewhere, but after that it will get to risky. As mention up above if I could have gotten out of State now and gone west I'd a done it.

    My heart will always be in the west. Interestingly enough where I had in mind the weather can be as ferrous as where I'm going to although nowhere near the total yearly snowfall average. But I could wear a cowboy hat without people looking at me kind of funny. Oh well, maybe I'll still do it in a few more years who knows.
