  1. The Day of The Owl;

    I took these off the forum thread so I'd know where they are, if you don't read the What's In Your Yard thread that is where they were originally posted

    He or she had a squirrel pinned in one of the spruce trees but..... Eventually the squirrel approached and gave the owl hell for sitting there.

  2. Tough on Moose, Tough on Men

    For the past 8 winters I've been faced with ever worsening conditions. Not enough snow has been a continuing theme and if it did snow it did so with the temps at or above 32 degrees. Our winters have been warm and dry from here at home all the way to the cabin at the lake some 115 miles away in the Interior. Snows were often followed by rain which created either icy travel (snowmachine) or water overflow on the rivers which is downright awful.

    Since late December things have not only ...

  3. Moving Toward Spring Now;

    I'm procrastinating right now. We finally had cold weather for almost 5 weeks and there is more snow out at the cabin than I need for access. The deeper it is the harder the trip. What I must do is to drive to a bulk fuel depot and fill 3 drums with gasoline and then take them 37 miles to Willow AK. where they will be loaded onto my freight sled for transport to the cabin.

  4. I May Have It All Wrong but............

    Then just today on our "What's In Your Yard" thread I saw posts, one with a picture of deep snow and another showing a rain gauge registering 5" in front of a members home.

    The rain gauge reminded me of what I replied on the fellows thread about flooding conditions so I went and copied it and here it is. ...

  5. A Trip to the Cabin January - February 3rd 2020

    Last Thursday we got some supplies around and then left for the trip to the cabin on the lake. The trip involves hauling a couple Skidoo snowmachines from home to the launch site some 37 miles from home. From there you unload and then drive for 74.6 miles over 3 different frozen rivers, islands and finally a 8 1/2 mile course across land. Generally the river portion of the trip is uneventful because they are the main artery of supply and travel into the Interior. These are the rivers that races ...
