    Supposed to be 80° Saturday, and Sunday. A good day to break the ol Jeeper out.

    Low 80s projected for here, hopefully the rain will stay at bay, so we can get outdoors and do something!

    I was just telling the wife that I'll be glad when the cooler weather sets in, so we can start hiking again.

    I'm so tired of summer already. It's been extraordinarily humid here, insects are out in hoards, and working outside on some days, it's hotter than hell! I'm really looking forward to opening day of bow season, SEC football, and most all, backpacking and camping!

    Preach it brother, preach it. I hear that. I'm not a summer fan at all. I don't do well in the heat. I'm thinking of getting a one man tent, and doing an overnighter in the snow. I think it would be fun. Or maybe just a tarp even.

    On a different tune, we have flood warnings until 7pm tomorrow evening. I hope that rain hits us. We're in need of rain...

    I don't mind the heat as much as I do the chiggers. My legs are tore up from working at a state forest all summer.

    For me the key to hiking in the heat is to start as early as possible, that way you can somewhat acclimate as it gets hotter.

    But I am definitely looking forward to the cool weather.

    Have you ever camped in a hammock? I enjoy it, and you can make one yourself for not much money.

    I'm hoping there is more snow this winter so I can give snow camping a shot. Last winter was too mild down here.

    Also, congrats on the Modship.
    But if you follow the pattern of other Becker mods, you will probably fall off the face of the interwebz and quit posting in a couple months.:D

    Chiggers only seem to like me at the cabin. Had never had them in my entire life, until I started going there.

    Speaking of property last night, we had looked last week and found near 20 acres suppose to be lake front, prices are decent out here pending location but lake front.??... Something's up with that, maybe an easement spanning 2/3rds the property ??dunno...it was cheaper than acreage out in po-dunk...lol

    Sorry I didn't pick up on that.
    Maybe I should run to the hills.

    *lol*

    My first 3-month tour in 2001 must have broken me. (4 months in '02 very nearly did.)
    Now I'm a day-tripper by comparison. :rolleyes:

    Daizee you have been broken for sure... Never needed dramamine myself and have witnessed the sickness don't wish that on anyone.. Afterward does it take days to get over the movement?? seems the more the confined space ( like a shower) the more i rocked (on land)....
