Sat. Afternoon Backroad/Trail Ride...
Went out today with the Girlfriend and an AR with .22 conversion...
Only thing short enough to fit in my back seat!
Anyway, went for a ride down by the river. Didn't see anything to take a shot at except for piece of tin in a dump.
Nice day and we had a pretty good time....
Nice weather, stopped a the fresh fruit market on the way out so we snacked on peaches and strawberries.
Had homemade lemon aid in the water bottle, so things could have been a bunch worse!
Found a pretty good trail, but it's going to be muddy a lot of the year, it's in flood plain and it's clay/topsoil, so I'm sure it's going to be sloppy!
Pretty squishey today and from the looks of it.... It's been soggy for a while!
Deer central out there, we must have seen 10 deer today, including a pretty good size buck in felt already...
Poison Ivy should be a cash crop, the farmers around here would be rich!
I've never seen such a bumper crop of poison ivy as this year...
Makes me scratch just thinking about it!
We saw a red fox do the strangest thing today...
Came out in the road (Still paved at that point), set down in the middle of the road and started scratching under it's chin...
First one hind foot, then shifted and used the other hind foot.
We got the jeep within 10 feet of the little dude before he even showed us any attention at all! Then all he did was change feet again!
When he had a good scratch, he gout up and walked off!
Didn't run, didn't alert, no tail standing out, no looking over his shoulder like a fox will do, just ambled off out through a field and into a barn without a concern in the world...
Strangest behavior out of a Fox I've ever seen!
Hawks are fat as turkeys this year!
No real winter, so the ate good all year, and they are HUGE!
Saw one sitting on a fence post from about 30 feet away before he moved and I actually though it was a turkey when we drove up on it, before it flew away.
Had a root beer shake (root beer float run through the shake machine) on the way home and it was GOOD!
All things being equal, it was a pretty good afternoon! Can't complain so I won't!
Need to work on the little heep, but that's hard to do while we are driving and enjoying it!
Best $600 I've ever spent!
