    We've got about a forty foot sand hill but I don't think I'd need the crampons.

    My son and daughter do the same stuff, pretty interesting and builds great strength and coordination. We went to some shows in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee last week that had aerial performers and they told me that they did a lot of similar routines. I'm not so sure about the tights though......:?

    Sean's right about the hanger, that would've probably been first priority, but hey, we're looking at it after the fact. I like what you said about physics not being personal, it's just business. Was there any damage to the headstones? Thanks for sharing the vid and for being real.

    If I remember correctly, Ross Allen did that, he had a "reptile institute" near Silver Springs, don't know if that's who you got 'em from Jay.

    Not as much as you'd think. All the rat snakes climb like squirrels and are encountered in sabal palms fairly regularly but the only poisonous snakes I've ever seen in trees here are cottonmouths and they're not really climbers, they just crawl out on limbs overhanging the water so they can sun and make a quick escape by falling off. More hazardous to boaters than tree climbers.

    I came across this trio a couple of days ago. It's pretty rare in my experience to catch two snakes in the act. I watched the third one scent trail them down and try to join in on the action. Black rat snakes, just called black snakes by most folks.

    Sounds like a rare jewel Cory. Guys like that seem to me to be getting scarcer all the time. If they are indeed, I wonder what could be done to reverse that trend? The Eagles rock Chris, they were "my" group back in the '70s.

    I've never caught one but Makos are supposed to be excellent. I've always heard that Nurse sharks, because of their diet, are the the next thing to lobster but all those I ever caught were too big to go in the fish box and now the state has made it illegal to possess one. I guess I'll never know.

    It ain't just in B.C. Justin. People just don't have time for simple pleasures anymore. There's only one horse in our whole county that I know of. The wife and I both grew up with horses but I haven't ridden in years. I had an opportunity on a backcountry hunt in Wyoming a couple of years ago but they were one horse shy so I let the rest ride and I hiked in (and out). I was really impressed at how sure-footed they were going up and down those mountains.

    I hear ya Justin. I guess mullet of one subspecies or another is found pretty much world wide Chris. Silver and striped mullet here. The striped mullet caught around the offshore islands on sand bottom here are actually pretty good.

    :thumbup: Crazy Starbucks stories Reg. Never been inside one but I see that kind of behavior in other places. Common courtesy has become very uncommon. I run to the door to get ahead of those kind and then hold it open for them. Messes with their mind;)

    Although you can eat about any of them, some are much better than others and some are just plain nasty. Ladyfish are beautiful, aggressive, great jumpers, fighters and one of our most numerous species through the summer but are just plain nasty to eat. I saw schools yesterday that probably numbered in the hundreds of thousands. I'm not a shark fan either. If blacktips are gutted when they hit the deck and immediately immersed in a super cold salt/ice slush to stop the skin urination/ammonia build up process, they are not bad but with so many other better fish, I don't bother unless a visitor just wants to try one. Puffers are outstanding, but if you nick their gall bladder and it gets on the meat, there's a good chance that six of your friends will give you a lift into the back of a big black station wagon. I fillet them without opening the body cavity.

    I get where you're coming from Paul but I really enjoy the climbing, always have. Thankfully this body has held up pretty well. When I have to hang up the hooks I'll be done.

    Sea trout were biting good this morning. I think I could've sunk the boat with 'em. I just had to leave.

    I pick my jobs and only do tree work when I want to now, usually 2-3 days a week. There are too many fish in the Gulf to work full time.
