Still raining here, started a few hours ago, nice slow rain, we need the water, My sons well already went dry, about a month ago, His land lord is trucking water in to a 2000 gal storage tank, hoping that with the winter rains, he won't have too go deeper. You guys break out the detectors, and find some big gold. Grubstake

Been real windy here in dark cloudy Prescott Valley AZ all day ... looking more ominous every hour that passes ... expect the rain sometime tonight and most of tomorrow probably ... I live out in the flats between town and Mingus Mountain ... the grass out here is bone dry and brown ... prime fire-starter material ... the rain will be welcome for a day ... after that "rain, rain go away come again another day!" :) Like next month when I'm in Maine! :brows::old: Mike F

Mike,going up there where they pronounce it 'Fur'ness' I see. Well get ready for the snow for by the time you get there it might have fallen already. No gold to beep up there Mike, but lots of Moose and deer to harvest. :th_rain-umbrella: Really nice day in the desert today maybe a little rain tomorrow?

Mike, I've been to Maine a few times, when I was Driving longhaul truck, I even got to go to new Finland once, and we had a drive that was from there, I had to put my truck on a a boat to get there, we convoyed up, there was 10 trucks in it, we were hauling oil drilling rigs, Grubstake

Grubstake ... Just curious ... do you remember if you went through Calais ME into New Brunswick across the St John River and then ferry to Newfoundland? Reason I ask is that Calais was an old stomping ground of mine back when we had a camp on Big Lake in Princeton Maine ... beautiful part of the state but the coyotes have devastated the deer population so we don't hunt there anymore. We all hunt the western mountains and North Maine Woods which is northwestern Maine from Moosehead Lake northward. ---Mike

Old Tom ... Hoping the snow has fallen ... I love tracking, stalking deer. I am NOT a stand hunter ... I'm only good in one place without getting fidgety for 10-15 minutes. Don't know how hunters can sit in a tree stand or ground blind all day ... just haven't the patience. Besides I just have to see what is on the other side of that hill or swamp or stand of timber ... there just has to be a deer over there! :brows::4chsmu1::old: ---Mike F

Mike, I don't remember the exact way we went, it was back in the late 70's, and I've been all over the world since then, We were wide and heavy loads, and were escorted most of the way, I just remember that ferry ride, it was about a 4 hour ride if I remember right, and at the time though it was a great adventure. Grubstake

But I've also been to Bangor a few time with regular loads. To a big lumber mill up there.

I also hauled the Bull wheel for the sky lift from Carson City Nv. To Killington VT. , they met me with a helicopter, to lift the wheel yo the top of the mountain,
